C. venue since the 1980's. David Wright's professional artistry and experience always create a connection with his audience. The ensemble will present a concert from The Great American Songbook drawn from its White House dance band arrangements. Each song is introduced with an interesting story and performed with energy and stylistic excellence. The event is free.
