Trice Atchison, vocals; Peter Coombs, percussion; Richard Evans, keyboard; and Roger Suter, bass, will perform selections from "The Great American Songbook". We will sample this music from Kern and Berlin through Gershwin, Rogers, Arlen, and Porter and describe the artistic and social context in which it developed. In this music you will discover the magical combination of story/song, swing, and improvisation known as "jazz". This event is free and open to the public.
