Sherrie Maricle and the DIVA Jazz Orchestra performed a concert for the Edinboro community in the Louis C. Cole Auditorium on Thursday, March 23.

As the instrumentalists took the stage, Maricle introduced the group and explained that the orchestra is celebrating its 24th birthday this year and explained a little bit about the “creator” of the band, the late Stanley King.

Before the band performed, Maricle introduced the orchestra and explained they would be playing music from their last few albums. The orchestra’s set consisted of nine songs composed by members of the band itself and also other various artists.

The group played songs such as “Put a Little Love in Your Heart,” by Jackie DeShannon, “How You Doing,” by Stanley King and a jazz rendition of “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead” from “The Wizard of Oz.”
