Honeywell House presents Jazz on the Lawn

The Honeywell House in Wabash will present its 2nd annual fundraising event, Jazz on the Lawn, featuring the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra on Thurs., Aug. 2.  The “Back Home Again in Indiana” outdoor concert will feature a tribute honoring Indiana-born songwriters Cole Porter and Hoagy Carmichael.  The event is presented by lead sponsors First Merchants Bank and Wabash Electric.

The Indianapolis Jazz Orchestra includes a 15 piece band and two vocalists.  The group will showcase Porter and Carmichael’s greatest hits including “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “Georgia on My Mind,” “Night and Day,” “Heart and Soul,” “Begin the Beguine,” “Stardust,” and “I Get A Kick Out of You.” Indianapolis Jazz Orchestra performances have earned a reputation for being both entertaining as well as having outstanding general-audience appeal.  Their concerts are crafted to create a special rapport between the audience and the performers, resulting in a fun and intimate concert experience.
Those attending are encouraged to bring a blanket or chairs and enjoy the shaded area along Charley Creek.  Guests may purchase grilled summer favorites from the food tent or pre-purchase specialty dinners for two by calling the Honeywell House until July 25.  In case of inclement weather, the concert will be held in the Honeywell Center’s Legacy Hall.  Parking will be available at the Honeywell House, Christ United Methodist Church, Wabash High School, and the American Health Network parking lot.  The Wabash County Transit will run from 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. between Wabash High School and the Honeywell House.

Concert tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for youth through high school, and $250 for tables of eight (a limited number of tables are available).  The lawn opens at 5 p.m. and the performance begins at 7 p.m.  Proceeds benefit the Honeywell House.  Tickets may be purchased through Honeywell House Board Members or through the Honeywell House by calling (260) 563-2326 ext. 21 or by visiting www.honeywellhouse.org.  Tickets are also available at the Honeywell Center Box Office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or by calling (260) 563-1102.

The Honeywell House is the former home of Mrs. Mark C. Honeywell and is now operated as a cultural house museum in Wabash, IN.  The house is owned and operated by the Honeywell Foundation, a non profit organization that also operates the Honeywell Center, Eagles Theatre and 13-24 Drive In.
