Hear All-American Tunes from the Great American Songbook During This New Series
Join the Peace Center as they usher in the new Fine Arts Center Jazz All Stars Concert Series! This new partnership between the Fine Arts Center and the Peace Center’s Community Impact program gives up-and-coming young artists the opportunity to showcase their skills and perform in a professional setting. Check out the first production next Wednesday, February 27th beginning at 7:00 p.m.
Featuring students from both the jazz studies and vocal departments, along with Jazz Studies Instructor Steve Watson and Voice Instructor Danielle Knox, these concerts give you the opportunity to see local rising stars. The February program will feature selections from the Great American Songbook, including works from composers Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Jimmy Van Heusen, and Irving Berlin.
The Great American Songbook, also known as "American Standards," is the canon of the most important and influential American popular songs and jazz standards from the early 20th century. Although several collections of music have been published under the title, it does not refer to any actual book or specific list of songs, but to a loosely defined set including the most popular and enduring songs from the 1920s to the 1950s that were created for Broadway theatre, musical theatre, and Hollywood musical film. They have been recorded and performed by a large number and wide range of singers, instrumental bands, and jazz musicians.
Be there when the Peace Center launches this monumental series! Tickets to the February installment of the concert series are $25 and may be purchased via www.peacecenter.org.
