    The Arsenal Center for the Arts will be swingin’ when a 16-piece big band meets Broadway favorites on March 24, 2012.

    In the grand tradition of the Big Band, a.k.a. the Swing Era, the program will feature original jazz arrangements of tunes adapted from their Broadway context. The arrangements have been written by bandleader Larry Monroe and played only once before at the San Juan Jazz Festival in Puerto Rico. This concert is the Arsenal Center for the Arts’ annual benefit featuring the music of Gershwin, Porter, Berlin, Rodgers, Kern and others in a program led by celebrated saxophonist Larry Monroe, with veteran vocalist Donna McElroy.
