NORTH MANCHESTER – The Manchester University Department of Music is bringing the Fort Wayne Jazz Orchestra to Timbercrest Senior Living Community for big band favorites.

The concert will be at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Assembly Room at Timbercrest, 2201 East St., North Manchester. It is free and open to the public.

The Fort Wayne Jazz Orchestra was born from what used to be The Blue River Big Band. Its goal is to serve northeast Indiana as Fort Wayne's premier repertory big band with jazz musicians in the region.

The Dr. Joyce A. Nolen and Rev. Wilfred E. Nolen Endowment Fund for Music made this program possible.
