Abe Goldstein, host of Jazz at Caspe Terrace,
has announced that this month’s performance
will be cancelled. Shelia Jordan and Cameron
Brown were scheduled to perform at the Waukee
venue’s Bucksbaum Auditorium on Tuesday, Oct.
18. Unfortunately Jordan and Brown’s tour has
been plagued with problems, which has resulted
in cancellation of the date. Caspe Terrace’s
next Jazz performance is slated for Dec. 13,
so drop Abe a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information or to order tickets.
