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.
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.
