With the assistance of community partners, the institute will welcome guests for the free musical performance by the Sentimental Journey Orchestra directed by Ted Conerly.
The audience will be inspired and entertained with original arrangements of the swing and big-band jazz music of the '40s and '50s. The concert will be accompanied by video images shown on the ITC's unique dome screens.
"Memorial Memories" is a nostalgic recollection of the swing era, not commonly found on today's radio dial. The lively numbers bring the audience to its feet and get people dancing in the aisles. Seating fills up quickly, so arrive early.
