CLEVELAND - Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) today announced the cancellation of Leslie Odom, Jr.’s performance at the 39th annual Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland.
Odom is cancelling tour dates due to scheduling conflicts with a film project, which will prevent him from joining the headliners performing opening night at Tri-C JazzFest.
The concert — scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 28 — will feature Tony Award winner Dee Dee Bridgewater and the all-female big band DIVA. Festival organizers are working to sign another artist to add to the lineup.
“Unfortunately, this is life in show business,” said Terri Pontremoli, director of JazzFest. “We have no doubt we’ll book an exciting addition for the opening night concert.”
