The Cab Calloway Orchestra, now directed by Cab's grandson, C. Calloway Brooks, will perform jazz standards at Missouri University of Science and Technology this September.
The orchestra will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at Leach Theatre in Castleman Hall, located on the Missouri S&T campus at the corner of 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
