With a break from last year, a reconfiguration of members and a new name, the Calgary Women’s Jazz Collective presents a concert to celebrate International Women’s Day. The singers will present tunes from the American Songbook, with an emphasis on women composers and lyricists as well as some original compositions and songs from a women’s point of view. A portion of ticket sales will be in aid of the Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter.
The night will feature singers and song-writers Mary Boyes, Mari Jo de Waal, Glennis Houston, Valdine Schroeder and Deb Rasmussen. We will be backed up by highly regarded Calgary musicians Andrea Petrity on piano; Jeremy Coates on bass and John DeWaal on drums.
Tickets $20 at brownpapertickets.com or cash at the door.
