Mansfield’s premier jazz ensemble, the Mansfield Jazz Orchestra (MJO), is set to present its spring concert at the Richland Academy of the Arts on Friday, April 26, 2019 at 7:00pm. This will be the jazz orchestra’s third public performance and will spotlight the music of Woody Herman trombonist Vaughn Wiester and MJO’s artistic director Paul Martin.

It is Paul’s honor and privilege to share the stage with his mentor and close friend Vaughn Wiester.

He leads his Famous Jazz Orchestra every Monday night in Columbus which features big band jazz from the 1950s and 60s, and is a living encyclopedia of jazz history. Also featured on the program will be Mansfield’s own, vocalist Kelly Knowlton.
This concert will feature many well known songs, such as “Begin the Beguine,” “Where or When,” “Nature Boy,” “It’s Delovely,” “Spring Is Here,” and so many more.
