Wynton-MarsalisJazz concert reportedly booked at Huber music center | www.daytondailynews.com.

The Music Center at the Heights is expected to open in the spring. (excerpt)

… The center opens in the spring and construction is mostly wrapped up. City Manager Rob Schommer says there’s a lot more to managing things like the box office and concession stands than officials originally realized.
