Big Band draws a large crowd at the Lutheran Home
April 30th, 2012
On Sunday, April 29, the Lutheran Home had an amazing turnout at the final Americana Art Series performance, the Roy Vombrack Orchestra.
The irresistible sound of soaring trumpets, robust trombones, wailing saxophones and swinging rhythm section filled the Chapel of St. John with guests eager to swing and rock to the 17-piece Chicago big band.
Saxophonist, Roy Vombrack, and the band played well-known music from iconic big bands such as Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller, as well as original songs by band members.
Also joining the band was two professional ballroom dance couples from the Ballroom City Dance Studio in Villa Park, who delighted everyone with elegant waltzes, foxtrots and two-steps.
The entire Americana Art Series was widely successful, and is just another example of the unique, faithful, community programs Lutheran Life Communities offers.
