In 2015 the Johnny Knorr Orchestra is celebrated 55 years of providing Classic Big Band Music. 2015 also marked the final year for the Johnny Knorr Orchestra.
THE GOOD NEWS AND THE BAD NEWS ~ There is an old proverb that says “All Good Things Must Come To An End,” it is now that time for The Johnny Knorr Orchestra. At the end of this 2015 season The Orchestra will have completed 55 years of “The Music You Like...The Way You Like To Hear It.” The Orchestra will have played over 3000 engagements, provided working engagements for over 2500 musicians and 2000 vocalists, and played countless shows. The Orchestra has also provided Classic Big Band music for listening and dancing for countless thousands of friends and orchestra followers.
I am deeply saddened to announce that after 55 continuous years of performances we must close the musical book of The Johnny Knorr Orchestra.
We have been honored to have brought musical pleasure to so many for so long and to have made so many unforgettable friends.
Under the direction of Jerry Knorr, the final concert was held on September 19, 2015 at Centennial Terrace. We closed out the Dancing Under the Stars series so many have enjoyed through the years. It was an unforgettable night as we celebrated 55 years and said our farewells.
