“The Lycoming College Jazz Ensemble has been performing music in the lobby of the CAC for a variety of other acts for the last couple of years,” said William Ciabattari, associate professor of music and chair of the department. “We have made it to the stage for the first time, and we are sharing that opportunity with our mentors and friends, Williamsport’s own professional big band, the Williamsport City Jazz Orchestra.”
