March 25, 8 pm
Nineteen Jazz Orchestra presents a tribute to the First Lady of Song, the great Ella Fitzgerald. Ms. Fitzgerald's career spanned some sixty years, during which time she performed with America's great jazz musicians, most notably the orchestra leaders Duke Ellington and Count Basie, and trumpeter Louis Armstrong, with whom she recorded several utterly charming vocal duets over the years. She performed in movies and TV, and with many musicians not associated with jazz.
In addition to her beautiful rendering of lyrics and melody, she was a tremendous influence in the development of jazz singing. She improvised brilliantly in the "scat" tradition and could swing as hard as any drummer or sax player.
Continuing this great jazz vocal tradition is our wonderful singer, Juanita Harris, whose own swinging style of scatting and interpreting the standards has been making audiences (and members of the band) happy for years.

Tabard 2016-2017 Season Event
DID SOMEONE SAY “MUSICAL?”… Tabard wraps up its 2016-2017 season with MUSICAL OF MUSICALS (The Musical!), a musical about, well, musicals, in this hilarious send-up of favorite and famous Broadway musicals and their creators.
With entirely original music and lyrics, the work of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Jerry Herman, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Kander and Ebb is spotlighted in this loving satire and homage to musical theatre.
Written by the composing team of Joanne Bogart (lyrics and book) and Eric Rockwell (music and book), MUSICAL OF MUSICALS (The Musical!) received a 2004 Drama Desk nomination for Best Musical, as well as individual nominations for Best Music and Best Lyrics.
MUSICAL OF MUSICALS (The Musical!) will be directed by Doug Baird, with music direction by Samuel Cisneros.
