A Tribute to Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong with The Syncopators and Yvette Johansson
12 November 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:30 pm AEDT$17 – $22
A rapturous homage to the king and queen of jazz.
Beginning with jazz’s most powerful figure, Louis Armstrong, The Syncopators will take you back to the 1920s to explore his pioneering influence on the artform. Then moving forward to the big band era of the 1930s, with a joyous celebration of Satchmo’s famous vocal duets with America’s First Lady of Song: the unparalleled Ella Fitzgerald.
Hardly strangers to Arts Centre Melbourne, The Syncopators have raised the roof of Hamer Hall with sell-out concerts including Great American Songbook, Tribute to Bing Crosby and Best of British. They will be joined by the ever charming and immensely talented Yvette Johansson. Get ready for an afternoon of brass, blues and brilliance.
