Vaughn Wiester's Famous Jazz OrchestraSunday, September 1, 2019
Schnormeier Event Center - 7:30 p.m.
FREE, thanks to our generous sponsors

Vaughn Wiester's "Famous Jazz Orchestra" is made up of 22 very talented professional musicians that have come together once a week on a semi-informal basis for the last 22 years to share their love of their music by "reading" the best Big Band Charts from the last 50 years. For us "big band" fans, this is an opportunity to hear the sounds of Woody Herman, Stan Kenton, Duke Ellington and all the great bands, without ever leaving central Ohio.

Always a tremendously popular event at the park, Vaughn had people up and out of their seats last year, dancing both fast and slow to the wonderful nostalgic sounds of yesteryear.
