Lizzie Cooper & her Trio: Jazz Night

Tell a friend:

1st April 2014 - 8pm

Venue: Loughborough Town Hall

The third in a series of relaxed jazz evenings performed in the relaxed and intimate surroundings of the venue's Sock Gallery.  Lizzie will host the evening and perform with her trio of piano, bass and drums. The concert will also feature special guest violinist John Pearce. 

Lizzie sings standards from the ‘Great American Songbook’ from the 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s, including songs written by Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Rodgers and Hart, and Carlos Jobim as well as many others.  Lizzie comments, “The sound and tone of my voice, I have been told, is quite distinct.  It has a low register and is quite mellow.” 

John Pearce, violin
John is a virtuoso violinist who is equally at home playing jazz or classical. He began learning the violin at the age of seven and has  performed all over Europe and Japan.
He has performed live as a soloist on BBC radio and television and has given world premieres of works by composers such as Sir Richard Rodney Bennet.
Festival performances include the Cheltenham Music Festival, the Bath Festival and the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival.

The Jazz Night offers a relaxed experience with an open bar and unreserved seating.  The concert begins at 8pm, ending at 10.30pm.

Lizzie's new CD entitled 'You Don't Know What Love Is' will be available for sale on the evening.
