Swing Into Spring, May 5, benefits Jazz Arts Group

Plan now to join your Columbus Jazz Orchestra as we “Swing into Spring”
with the second annual Swingin’ Soiree, benefiting the Jazz Arts Group!
This year’s event will take place Friday, May 5 at the beautiful Scioto
Country Club.

The fun kicks-off with a cocktail reception and Silent Auction at 6:30,
followed by dinner at 7:30 and an evening of good food, good friends
and great music! Beginning at 8:30, you can dance to the sounds
of the Columbus Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of Artistic Director
Byron Stripling, and enjoy some of your favorite tunes.

“This is our one, major fundraiser for the Jazz Arts Group,” remarked Bob
Breithaupt, JAG Executive Director. “Support of this year’s Swingin’
Soiree will not only assist JAG in producing one of the most energetic
performing schedules in central Ohio, it will also extend the reach of our
many education and community service programs, such as Jazz for Kids,
All that Jazz and the American Jazz Experience. It’s a great way for our
friends to help us in our mission and have a great time, too!”

Honorary Chairs for this year’s event are Andy and Eleanor Geiger, with
Donna Buckley serving as Chair of the event’s Steering Committee.

Admission is $200 per person, with reserved tables of ten available for
$2000. A portion of each ticket is tax deductible. Phone reservations
may be made by calling Kevin Greenwood, JAG Director of Development
at 614-294-5200, ext. 102. or send email
