Count Basie Orchestra to perform
The Count Basie Orchestra will perform Oct. 26 at 3 p.m. in Hodgson Concert Hall. William "Count" Basie started the Count Basie Orchestra in 1935. Within a year, America was listening in on radio shows throughout the country to hear what would become "the swingingest band in all the land." In the history of jazz music, Basie is the only bandleader whose orchestra is still performing sold-out concerts all over the world-with members personally chosen by him-30 years after his death. Tickets are $35-$40 with discounts for students.
