Tommy Dorsey Orchestra to Perform on October 10th in the Gatliff Chapel

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. - The Fine Arts Association of Southeastern Kentucky is to present The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 10, at University of the Cumberlands’ Gatliff Chapel. The concert is co-sponsored by AISIN Automotive Casting and the City of Williamsburg.

In the history of Big Band music, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra is legendary; recognized as one of the best all-around dance bands. Dorsey, a master at creating smooth musical moods and listener-friendly tempos, helped vocalist Frank Sinatra launch his career. The band was at its peak in the 1940s, but split in 1946. Two years later, Dorsey reformed it.

Now under the direction of noted trombone player Buddy Morrow, the band retains its authentic sound, style and the unique ability to meet every musical situation. The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra continues to represent explosive and swinging Big Band entertainment at its best.
