  Wabash College’s Visiting Artists Series will present the Diva Jazz Band on Thursday, September 7 in Salter Concert Hall in the Fine Arts Center. The performance starts at 8 p.m.

Led by drummer Sherrie Maricle, Diva is an all-female jazz orchestra steeped in the history of jazz but infused with the progressive harmonies of today. Based in New York City, the group plays contemporary big band jazz composed and arranged by band members and some of the genre’s most renowned writers. Diva has performed at top venues around the world, including the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, television’s CBS Sunday Morning, and a sold-out concert at Carnegie Hall. "The band punches, kicks, and swings with a disciplined abandon and an unaffected joie de vivre."—The Jazz Times
