This summer’s first Concert in the Park features the Pam Noah Swing Band on the Melvin Miller Park stage at 7 p.m. June 25. All of this summer’s concerts, presented by the Champaign County Arts Council, are free of charge. Those attending may wish to bring outdoor chairs or blankets.
Pam Noah and Her Swing Band began in 1994 as an off-shoot of the Queen City Big Band in Cincinnati. Pam began signing professionally in 1986 and has performed in many U.S. venues as well as on USO tours. Don Littman, a major supporter of this smaller band effort, enlisted the help of noted arranger Dale Burke to write arrangements for the band, roughly half of which feature Pam as a vocalist. The band consists of one trumpet, one trombone, three saxes, piano, bass, and drums.
The band features some of the best musicians in the Cincinnati area. At some point in their careers, the musicians have performed in traveling bands. Some of their past credits include Stan Kenton, Buddy Rich, The Glenn Miller Orchestra, Ruth Lyons, Rosemary Clooney, and the Bob Braun Show. For more, visit www.pamnoah.com
