Smith Opera House to host Tommy Dorsey Orchestra

One of the best all-around dance bands — The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra — will present a concert 7 p.m. Thursday, April 26 at the Smith Opera House, 82 Seneca St., Geneva. Tickets are $17 general admission and $10 for senior citizens and the doors will open at 6 p.m.

Directed by trombonist Buddy Morrow and featuring vocalist Walt Andrus, the performance salutes those who recall the historic Geneva landmark when Tommy Dorsey was originally a headliner: the region’s senior citizens.

The touring band’s current repertoire embraces not only the classics of the original Dorsey Orchestra, but also the spectrum of popular music from Dixieland, rhythm and blues and intricate ballads to progressive jazz and contemporary tunes.

Tickets are available at The Smith box office, by calling (315) 781-LIVE or toll-free (866) 355-LIVE, or by visiting The Smith.
