Popular Chicago vocalist Joan Curto, called “a seasoned interpreter who makes every note count” by the Chicago Tribune, celebrates the legacies and centennial birthdays of two vocal icons: Ella Fitzgerald and Lena Horne. From the same team that brought the popular Cole Porter concert to the Auditorium last fall, the evening features Chicago favorites E. Faye Butler and Tammy McCann with Paul Marinaro, Sophie Grimm, Beckie Menzie, and Tom Michael. The show will include many of the songs that each woman truly made her own: “A-Tisket, A-Tasket,” “Oh, Lady Be Good,” “Lullaby of Birdland,” “The Man I Love,” “Stormy Weather,” and many more. This big-band celebration will be conducted by Rich Daniels and the City Lights Orchestra.
