Best bets: Music

The 15-piece all-female big band is led by swing drummer Sherrie Maricle Bern. Also performing will be the LHS Stage Band and the LHS Jazz Ensemble.

With New York as its home base, DIVA performs all over the world playing big band tunes arranged to fit the individual personalities and styles of the musicians themselves. The band's most recent disc is Live from Jazz at Lincoln Center's Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, featuring vocalist Carmen Bradford.

In reviewing a live DIVA concert, Jazz Times raved, "The band punched, kicked, roared and swung with a disciplined abandon and an unaffected joie de vivre."
