February 12, 2016 – Jazz Vocalist Sharón Clark With The Uw Jazz Orchestra & Verona Area High School Jazz Ensembles

Sharón Clark appears regularly as a featured soloist with the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra and has headlined the Duke Ellington Jazz Festival, Cape May Jazz Festival, and the Savannah Music Festival.  Ms. Clark has won New York City’s Bistro Award for Best Vocalist, as well as first prize at the Savannah Music Festival’s American Traditions Competition, and first place in the Billie Holiday Vocal Competition, and her performances have been acclaimed by reviewers from the New York Times and Wall Street Journal.  Now an international touring artist, Ms. Clark has developed a major following in Russia (hence her 2/11 program for UW’s CREECA).  Her most recent recording is “Do it Again: My Tribute to Shirley Horn.” Check out her music on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrLS0KSmy3Y&list=PL1EE5F289C48158E0.  8:00 PM, UW Old Music Hall.  Free admission.
