|Austin, Texas – Apr 11, 2012 – Austin's first lady of Jazz, Pamela Hart, is teaming up with the acclaimed McCallum Fine Arts Academy Orchestra for a special concert to honor mothers, grandmothers and jazz lovers of all ages. Treat your mother and yourself to this special concert scheduled for 7pm, Friday May 11th at the McCallum Fine Arts Centre (5600 Sunshine Drive), which opened this fall.|
For the second year now we will be continuing this wonderful partnership which will blend the soothing songs of one of Austin's favorite jazz vocalists with the backing of an all-female string ensemble selected from McCallum Fine Arts Academy Orchestra. McCallum Assistant Orchestra Director Georgeann Shockley will lead the ensemble, which features a program full of jazz favorites.
As well as being a very talented vocalist and performer, Ms. Hart is well loved in Austin for her role in shaping Austin's Jazz Community. Pamela Hart started and runs the inclusive and much needed nonprofit Women In Jazz with her husband Kevin. Women In Jazz provides exposure to female jazz performers and fosters the appreciation of jazz in Austin. Many young female performers receive much needed exposure and guidance through this organization's work.
