Tickets are selling fast for this Sunday’s Afternoon Music concert by jazz singer Karrin Allyson. The nationally known jazz artist performs at 4 p.m. Sunday, January 14, in Beacon’s acoustically excellent sanctuary.
Allyson, a Kansas native who now lives in New York, has spent the last 15 years carving out an impressive career as a singer, songwriter, pianist, composer and bandleader. Her latest CD “Many a New Day” featured 15 songs by Rodgers and Hammerstein and made best of the year lists at Downbeat, Jazz Times and iTunes.
Sidemen for the engagement will be pianist Miro Sprague and bassist Marty Jaffe.
After the show, the audience is invited to meet the artists at a reception in Fellowship Hall.
Tickets are $25, seniors $20. Students are welcome free. We will be selling tickets after both services on Sunday.
Afternoon Music’s 2018 season includes a March 4 performance by mezzo soprano Helen Karloski, flutist Bart Feller and pianist Mitchell Vines, Beacon’s music director and Afternoon Music’s artistic director. On April 29 virtuoso Makoto Nakura will perform a marimba concert.
Subscriptions for all three performances are $65, seniors $50.
