You’ll be asking yourself as our Italian singer stacks chair upon chair and then balances on top of them on his hands…...Our crazy clown, Alex, PLUNGES off the diving board during his acrobatic trampoline excursion! Want to get splashed? Who knows what can happen during our astounding JETSKI act……Breathtaking Twins will fly high in the sky like beautifully colored birds of paradise……. Our Laserman will be causing all kinds of explosions with his laser guns……maybe to scare away the large DINOSAUR that has invaded the show!! All this, plus thrilling highwire feats, juggling maniacs, elegant chiffons, and more!! Don’t forget you also have the once in a lifetime opportunity to take a picture with a MERMAID/

It’s “Big Band” meets “Big Chorale” as the fabulous voices of the Peoria Area Civic Chorale and the exciting sounds of the Central Illinois Jazz Orchestra combine to perform some of the greatest all-time swing era songs such as I’ve Got a Gal in Kalamazoo, Chattanooga Choo Choo, Blue Moon, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Moonlight Serenade, Satin Doll and many others. Walk down memory lane with the music that had everyone doing the Jitterbug, the Lindy Hop and the Shim Sham.

 

Bring the entire family to the Performing Arts Center at Five Points Washington on Friday and Saturday, May 6 and 7 at 7:30 PM or on Sunday, May 8 at 3:00 PM and experience two hours of “happy music” performed by two of Central Illinois’ premier ensembles. Tickets are $20 for adults, $8 for students and $18 for groups of 10+ and may be purchased by visiting our the website or using the phone number listed above.
