Starting this Wednesday night through Sunday evening, the Columbus Jazz Orchestra presents “I Loves You Porgy”, featuring music from Gershwin’s only opera performed CJO-style with a swingin’ beat and hot rhythms. Combine 2004 Tony Award nominee Michael McElroy and Capathia Jenkins, who has toured nationally with Dreamgirls, and you have a can’t-miss stage experience.

The performance takes place this week at the Southern Theatre. As a special, Saturday night’s performance will be broadcast live on WOSU 89.7 FM.
