VAN WERT — Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Van Wert opens its 2016 season with jazz musicians Jonathan Butler and Gerald Albright Saturday.
“This is the opener to our 10 years of wow season and we really hand selected this event to kick it off, because of the energy they bring, it will be a good jazz celebration,” said Tafi Stober, marketing director at Niswonger Performing Arts Center.
Butler is an acclaimed guitarist and vocalist. Albright is a saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist.
“They are two icons in their genre,” said Stober. “Jonathan Butler has been to Niswonger two times before as part of a Christmas show.”
The audience will be entranced with the duo’s performance.
“It is really fitting that they are opening our season. It will be an inspiring night,” said Stober.
