CADME is thrilled to present the Count Basie Orchestra!
The Count Basie Orchestra is considered to be one of the most important and influential ensembles in the history of jazz. This opportunity will inspire and ignite musicians of all ages and from all genres of study!

On Thursday, April 12, 2018, CADME will present a concert for students from grades K-12 by the Count Basie Orchestra at Arts Commons’ Jack Singer Concert Hall. The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. and end at approximately 9:30 p.m.

Blocks of group tickets will be available for $20 per ticket to CADME member schools with a minimum requirement of 10 tickets and no maximum. It should be noted that, in the event we oversell the Jack Singer, we reserve the right to issue a percentage of requested tickets to each participating school in order to offer the greatest benefit to as many schools as possible. The deadline for ticket orders is Thursday, March 1. After that, we will be offering tickets to the public at an increased cost.
