MOUNT VERNON — Fat Tuesday, a new local jazz combo, ushers in Svetlana’s performance at the Woodward Opera House.

A newly-formed, local jazz combo infused with the sounds of New Orleans will welcome guests to the Svetlana and the Delancey Five concert at the newly-renovated Woodward Opera House on Saturday, Oct. 5.

Fat Tuesday will perform on the Promenade level of the Woodward Building beginning at 6:00 p.m for patrons as they arrive to attend New York-based jazz singer Svetlana’s 8 p.m. concert upstairs in the Woodward Opera House on Saturday, October 5.

Fat Tuesday, made up of members Ted Buehrer on trumpet, Eric Snyder on tenor and soprano saxophones, Andrew Clarkson, Jr. on guitar, Andrew Clarkson, Sr. on bass, and Skip Trask on drums, will help get audience members in a swinging mood as they pass through the promenade to the performance hall upstairs.

“Fat Tuesday draws on New Orleans jazz and funk, but we all enjoy playing a wide range of jazz styles,” said Buehrer, who founded the Knox Community Jazz Orchestra in 2017 and is a professor of music at Kenyon College.

“We are eager to share our music with the community, and hope the local connection might help attract more jazz lovers to Svetlana’s concert, which I’m sure is going to be spectacular.”
