VJC Big Band Scholarship Dance w/ Amanda Carr
Friday December 3, 2021 8:00-10:30 pm EST
VJC pays homage to the big band era this season, uniting our in-house big band with critically acclaimed singer Amanda Carr.
Carr became acquainted with the Great American Songbook through her parents who were both professional big band musicians in the Boston area.
Carr has recorded in the U.S. and abroad, including Australia, England and Italy where she appeared as a headline artist at EuroJazz Festival.
Twice a feature story by respected writer/author Nat Hentoff in The Wall Street Journal, Carr was hailed by him as “…a true jazz singer...”.
Ms. Carr has appeared as guest vocalist with the Boston Pops, the Artie Shaw Orchestra, the Harry James Band and the Glenn Miller Orchestra to name a few.
The VJC Big Band is led by musical director Rob Freeberg. This year the big band celebrates 18 years of performances thanks in great part to band manager Sherm Fox’s continued persistence and organizational efforts.
Dance the night away and savor the sounds of the swinging past!
This year each concert will have both a limited in-person audience as well as a livestream component. You may purchase in-person tickets and/or donate to the livestream.
