The Corsair Blue Jazz Orchestra Veteran’s Fundraiser event
“An evening Celebrating the Vets!”
The Corsair Blue Jazz Orchestra will perform a Fundraiser to benefit the “Wounded Warrior Project” on November 7, 2021 in the sanctuary of the Highland Presbyterian Church, 500 East Roseville Road, Lancaster, PA at 7:00 PM. Admission is free, and an opportunity will be provided to make donations, 100% of which will be sent in “Wounded Warrior Project.”
This is a follow up to our successful program held in November of 2019, which raised over $2,200 for Wounded Warrior and this year, we have a goal in 2021 of exceeding $3,000. The band is fresh off a successful performance at the recent Lancaster Roots & Blues Festival and is excited to perform our repertoire for this worthy cause. This year in addition to our extraordinary vocalist Todd Harris, we’ll be joined for this event by the Central PA Music Hall of Fame female vocalist of the year for 2021, Olivia Daugherty! This is a performance you won’t want to miss!
Come ready for the music of Glenn Miller, Les Brown, Count Basie and many others, and don’t forget your checkbook! If you are unable to attend but would like to contribute, donations may be sent to Highland Presbyterian Church c/o Corsair Blue Jazz Orchestra Fund Raiser or directly to Corsair Blue Jazz Orchestra at 590 Old Market St., Mount Joy, PA 17552.
About the band: Corsair Blue Jazz Orchestra (CBJO) is comprised of a mix of accomplished volunteer musicians, all of whom have come together to celebrate the music of the greatest generation. Formed in 2014 as a 501c3 “not for profit” organization, the band has performed regularly at public and private events, with annual appearances at the Lebanon VA and for Veteran’s Day concerts. The musicians span multiple generations, ranging in age from 20s to 70s with the common thread among CBJO’s performers being a love for popular Big Band music. Further, we enjoy seeing the joy of those who “remember when” and watching the excitement of the younger generations that have re-discovered the joy of this music. Overheard after one performance, “Wow, they sound just like the bands did back when I was young!”
