Vocalists Catherine Russell, Brianna Thomas, and Charenee Wade will channel the independent, liberated spirits, and pioneering vocalizations of 1920s blues divas Bessie Smith ("the Empress of the Blues"), Mamie Smith ("the Queen of the Blues"), Ma Rainey ("the Mother of the Blues"), and of the legendary icon of stage and film, Ethel Waters. Featuring arrangements of this era, Musical Director Vince Giordano will enliven this important strain of American music and demonstrate the ageless relevance of this century-old transcendence of love's follies through innuendo, revelation, and stomping the blues away.
