Jazz at Lincoln Center Presents Ladies Sing the Blues

Saturday, October 1, 2016
Time:
8:00 PM
Location: Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts 3680 Walnut Street, Philadelphia
Contact: Jean Brubaker

Vocalists Catherine Russell, Brianna Thomas and Charenee Wade channel the liberated spirits and pioneering vocalizations of four 1920s blues divas: Bessie Smith (the “Empress of the Blues”); Mamie Smith (the “Queen of the Blues”); Ma Rainey (the “Mother of the Blues”); and legendary stage and screen icon, Ethel Waters.

Backed by a seven-piece band, the ladies demonstrate the ageless relevance of this important genre in American music, tackling love’s follies and stompin’ the blues away


If there is interest, we will dine prior to the performance at a nearby restaurant.

Spouses and significant others are welcome!
