The Southern Tier’s biggest big band returns to the Firehouse Stage to perform Cole Porter’s greatest hits.

The Mason Warrington Orchestra has been led for the past twenty-five years by music director Hank Slechta. Current personnel includes saxophonists Al HammeBob PompiTim DonlinHank Slechta and Jeremy Corcoran; trumpeters Alan HowellCorky KlinkoNate Sodeur and Larry West; trombonists Mike RohrbachWarren Harrold and Mike Nave; pianist Jim Ford, bassist Tom Federowicz, drummer Brad Nemcek and vocalists Judy Giblin and Ralph Muro.

The orchestra’s repertoire consists of authentic arrangements from the books of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Les Brown, Stan Kenton and many other bands, both past and present. The band’s two featured vocalists recreate the sophisticated stylings of such legendary singers as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Bobby Darin and Peggy Lee. The orchestra has established itself as the “house” big band at the Schorr Family Firehouse Stage, where it plays to full houses at least twice annually. The band also performs regularly at several summer concert series throughout central New York and plays for many social, corporate, charitable and educational events. Its annual appearances at Jazz Vespers at Binghamton’s First Congregational Church and at the Oakdale Mall during the Christmas season have become audience favorites.
