Join us for a Vocal Jazz Jam, Singing the Great American Songbook. This MeetUp is for people who love singing the American standards, songs from the 30s and 40s. The type of songs sung by Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennet and now, Lady Gaga! We will supply the sound system and the musicians. Bring music for 2 songs you wish to sing with the band. This event is fun and casual. You don't have to be a polished or professional singer to participate. It is a safe and supportive group. If you prefer to listen, that's okay, too. It is a potluck party, so bring a snack or drink to share with the group.

I will be giving a vocal seminar and concert on the evening January 18th, 2012, in Athens. I plan to focus the workshop on vocal technique and on how to communicate with an accompanist. Pantelis Benetatos will be accompanying me. He is a wonderful pianist and he knows the American songbook! Please help me to spread the word and let me know if you wish to attend. Let me know if you prefer to attend the workshop or concert or both!
