It's not everyday that a girl gets to return to her hometown and sing jazz in the old movie theater where she used to go to Saturday matinees. But thanks to the Ponca City Arts & Humanities Council and the Oklahoma Arts Council, that is exactly what's happening. I am absolutely thrilled to be making a very special trip to Ponca City, OK to sing jazz in the historic Poncan Theatre. I have many happy memories of sucking on jawbreakers and watching Disney movies in this beautiful theater, which has since been restored and designated as a historic landmark. It's a real honor to have this opportunity to go back home and to perform the music I so love to the people I love.
My stalwart pianist and musical sidekick Randy Halberstadt will be making the trip with me. Joining us on the bandstand will be Michael Geib on bass & David Hardman on drums. Michael and David are both on the jazz faculty at the School of Music at the University of Central Oklahoma and we're very grateful to be performing with them.
This is going to be a very special performance for me and I look forward to seeing friends and family at the show!
