The 2014 Chesapeake Chamber Music Gala, “All That Jazz,” will be held on Saturday, March 8, 2014, beginning at 6 p.m. at the Avalon Theatre in Easton, MD. The Gala will begin with a concert headlined by international award-winning jazz vocalist, Caterina Zapponi, and her ensemble. Zapponi, a talented cabaret singer and the wife of legendary jazz pianist Monte Alexander, has performed music ranging from jazz and American popular song to cabaret and musical theater at prestigious venues, including New York’s Birdland and The Blue Note, and internationally at the Verbier and Saint Barthelemy festivals. She also performed “A Song For You” in the film “For the Love of the Game” with Kevin Costner.
The Chesapeake Chamber Music Gala is underwritten by Wye Financial & Trust, in partnership with Gilman Hill Asset Management. The Gala benefits the free and subsidized tickets provided during the annual two-week Chesapeake Chamber Music Festival in June, as well as YouthReach, and the free violin programs, “First Strings” and “Presto!” for grade school students. Concert only tickets for non-mezzanine balcony seats at the Avalon will be available for $30 each at www.chesapeakechambermusic.org, or by calling the office at 410-819-0380.
