"Jazz with Pizzazz" Dinner Planned for Night of SWOSU Jazz Festival


The Weatherford Arts Council is planning a “Jazz with Pizzazz” candlelight dinner in conjunction with the upcoming SWOSU Jazz Festival on Friday, February 10.

The dinner will be held at 6 p.m. in the Memorial Student Center Ballroom on the SWOSU campus. The jazz festival concert will follow at 8 p.m. in the SWOSU Fine Arts Center.

Kevin Collins said everyone is invited to the dinner which will have a menu of blackened chicken with butter cream shrimp sauce, red bean and rice, corn la crox, tossed salad with fried onions and vinaigrette, hot rolls, assorted cakes, coffee and tea. Because the special dinner is being offered at cost, with no profit, it is essential that tickets be purchased in advance, no later than February 3.  People interested in purchasing tickets should email Kevin Collins at kevin.collins@swosu.edu.

Tickets are $16 for the dinner only or $26 for a ticket that also includes admission to the Jazz Festival. 

“All are invited to make a very special evening out of one of Weatherford’s most treasured cultural traditions,” Collins said.
