Indianapolis Jazz Orchestra will be performing at Liberty Park in Batesville on June 18.

A new headliner has been named for Batesville Music and Arts Festival this coming June.

The Indianapolis Jazz Orchestra (IJO) has been booked for the show on Wed., June 18 at 7 p.m. at Liberty Park.

The nationally recognized orchestra is Indiana’s premier professional repertory large jazz ensemble composed of instrumentalists and vocalists from the central Indiana area. According to the website, the IJO is committed to performing world-class musical arrangements based on tunes from the Great American Songbook.

During the Batesville Music and Arts performance, the orchestra will perform popular tunes from musicians including Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington and Cole Porter and many more.

Last month, it was announced that the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra would not return to the music and arts festival in 2014.

The Mayor’s Committee for the Performing Arts selected the IJO after an extended search.
