CANCELLED DUE TO ILLNESS
Joanna Strand and Jacqui Tate at The Pheasantry- Sunday 14th May 2017 20.00
Joanna Strand and Jacqui Tate bring their spring show to The Pheasantry with original arrangements of songs by Gilberto, Loesser, Jobim, Arlen, Drake, Mitchell, Carmichael and many more. Exploring ‘the infinite variety’ of music, as expounded by Bernstein in his 1959 television lectures, they bring songs and musical themes from a multitude of musical sources, exploring just how much a composer can do with a few combinations of 12 notes.
These singers share a plethora of west end, opera and jazz credits, including Phantom of the Opera (where these ladies of song first met and where Joanna is now performing), Avenue Q, South Pacific, Master Class, Jekyll and Hyde and Allegro. They have presented roles for various opera houses, and appeared at jazz and cabaret venues including The Crazy Coqs, The Jazz Cafe, Dean Street Jazz Club, Birdland and and 54 Below, New York.
This dynamic duo will be ably backed by Romano Viazzani on Accordion, John Bailey on Piano, Jason Reeve on Drums and Richard Sadler on Bass.
