Valentino Orchestra to Play Ottawa Jazz Auction

The Ottawa International Jazz Festival presents its 4th annual Swing Into Spring silent auction on April 5 at the National Library of Canada with a special performance by the Valentino Orchestra. Ken Rockburn, host of CBC Radio One’s “All In a Day,” will emcee the event and act as auctioneer, gathering bids on a few rare treasures donated by friends of the festival.

Montreal’s Valentino Orchestra wowed concertgoers at

Confederation Park during Jazz Festival ’99, and the 14-piece band returns with its repertoire of “sophisticated swing.”
