Sensuous and engaging Jazz classics will be presented by the Master Singers of Milwaukee in cabaret style at the St Paul’s Episcopal Great Hall on Saturday, May 17th starting at 6:30 pm.  The audience will sit at tables and enjoy light refreshments and wine while listening to the stylings of the Chris Geiser Trio and the singers. The choir will be singing delightful arrangements of “I’ve Got the World on a String”,  “Isn’t It Romantic?”, “I Got Rhythm” and others. In honor of the Beatle’s Fiftieth Anniversary of performing on the Ed Sullivan Show, Master Singers will sing “A Long and Winding Road”. Members of the choir will also share favorite solos and ensembles.

In honor of the Fortieth Anniversary, a member of the choir and her sisters have commissioned an arrangement of “The Dark Town Strutter’s Ball”. UWM Jazz Studies chair Curt Hanrahan will play tenor saxophone with the choir. The original song was written in 1914 in Chicago by Shelton Brooks. The event that inspired the piece was an annual ball that was sponsored by “Ladies of the Night” and was the social event of the season.  Jazz pianist and arranger Joel Love is finishing a Doctorate in Music Composition at University of Texas in Austin.

The concert will also offer a raffle and several silent auction items including a Susan Tolonen print, tickets for entertainment and more.

Tickets for the concert are $30 each or $25 each for two or more. Refreshments are included and there is a charge for beverages. Tickets can be ordered by calling 888-744-2226 or online at www.mastersingersofmilwaukee.org
