This calendar includes not only “Jazzmom” performances but also performances of the award winning East Anchorage HS choirs.
Dear Friends and Fans,
At this time I'm not playing very many public performances, but rather, a number of private engagements. If you're interested in hosting a fun and exciting jazz event at your home or a designated venue, please consider including me ("The Jazzmom") and maybe some of my "guys"! And, let's all resolve to resurrect a REAL jazz club in Anchorage, so we can once again listen to, and celebrate a true American art form.
Thursday, January 22nd
East Anchorage High School Winter Choir Concert in the East HS Auditorium. Come check out 5 fabulous choirs, and listen to the sounds of talented high school singers. These students will surprise and delight you with their vocal abilities. FREE!
UAA Jazz Benefit Concert @ UAA Recital Hall. Melissa joins John Sterling (guitar), Cameron Cartland (drums), Pat Owens (trumpet/flugelhorn) and others for a splendid night of jazz. Cost $10-$20

@ the Atwood Concert Hall. Anchorage Symphony Orchestra presents “A Tribute to Ella”. Melissa joins the symphony and vocal powerhouse Capathia Jenkins and Broadway veteran Aisha de Haas in a tribute to 13-time Grammy Award winner Ella Fitzgerald. Tickets available from centertix.com
Sorry...friends and fans, all of my other appearances are for private events. Somebody out there-- open up a new jazz club! Long live the Keyboard Lounge. :)
