It’s a wonderful combination – jazz, a big band sound, and swing dancing. What more could you ask for?
Join us on Friday, November 17 for a presentation by the Astoria Big Band: Memories of Jazz in Queens.
Founded in 1986 by baritone saxophonist Carol Sudhalter, the Astoria Big Band presents the music of Queens’ greats including Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, Jutta Hipp, Big Nick Nicholas, Sarah McLawler, Clark Terry, Jimmy Heath, and more.
Fronting the band is a group of swing dancers, the Big Apple Lindy Hoppers, who bring zest, color, and movement to this already engaging performance.
Tickets – only $16/$10 Members & Students – can be purchased here.
