"Jacqui is joined by a stellar group of musicians as she turns her attention to some of the most iconic vocalists of the 20th century and the singers who defined The Great American Songbook – including Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone and Peggy Lee.

"Through a diverse repertoire arranged and curated by Jacqui, the concert celebrates the music of the Jazz Sirens,whose legacy and influence defined a classic era of jazz singing. ”
