Mother Nature abbreviates Ansonia concert

Simply Swing performs Wednesday at Veterans Park in Ansonia.

ANSONIA - Threatening skies cut short a performance by the 10-piece Simply Swing orchestra Wednesday night at Veterans Park.

The Newington-based band played classics from Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, and more for almost an hour in what would have been a two-hour show.

It was the last concert of the summer series sponsored by the Cultural Commission. The musicians said they would return to Ansonia next summer.

I'm looking forward to hearing them perform again, and no doubt many other audience members feel the same.
