Mayor Tecklenburg to kick off CJO season

Charleston’s newly inaugurated Mayor John Tecklenburg will take the stage to help the Charleston Jazz Orchestra kick off their 8th annual season.

The opening concert – “When Swing Was King – will be held Saturday, Feb. 20, at the Charleston Music Hall, 37 John St. The CJO will treat audiences to tunes from the 1930s and 40s, with such classics as “Chattanooga Choo Choo” and “Minnie the Moocher.” Mayor Tecklenburg will be a special guest artist on a piece by legendary jazz man – and Tecklenberg’s great uncle – Fud Livingston.
