Madeline Eastman Sings With Symphony
Sunday, Feb. 28, 2015
The Carson City Symphony, conducted by David Bugli, will be joined by jazz singer
Madeline Eastman for "On the
Jazzy Side," a concert on Sunday, February 28, 2016,
at 4:00 p.m. at the Carson City Community Center's Bob Boldrick Theater, 851 E. William
Street in Carson City, NV.
Tickets are $15 general admission; $12 for seniors, students, and Symphony Association
members; and free for youth age 16 and under. Tickets will be on sale at the Carson City
Visitors Bureau, 716 N. Carson Street; online at CCSymphony.com (see "BUY NOW" button below); or at the door.
"Fresh, arresting and electric" are the words that have been used to describe our
featured guest soloist Madeline Eastman. Ms. Eastman has long been heralded for her
vocal gifts, interpretive savvy, and irrepressible sense of adventure while performing
her bold interpretations of The Great American Songbook. Her performances have earned
her a spot on the coveted Downbeat Annual Critics Poll over five times. The LA Times
called her "A consummate, inventive, endlessly entertaining artist at work." The
JazzTimes said, "Eastman is an inveterately unpredictable traveler who never
fails to take us to magical places."
Eastman will perform some of her favorite songs, including four selections off her
upcoming Metropole Orchestra recording arranged by Jeff Beal for orchestra. The Symphony
has added a full sax section, extra trumpet, trombone, and drum set!
also includes works by composers who showed an interest in American jazz -
Shostakovich's Second Waltz and Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet Suite - and
Joplin's Bethena ragtime waltz, an early, innovative melding of jazz and classical influences.
Pre-show entertainment by the Symphony woodwind quintet begins at 3:00 p.m.in the
lobby, and a free concert preview begins at 3:15 p.m. in the Sierra Room. The preview,
hosted by conductor David Bugli, will include discussions with guest conductor
Timothy Reynolds and vocalist Madeline Eastman about the concert, composers, arrangers, and music.
A dinner reception at Red's Old 395 Grill follows the concert. For reservations,
required in advance, call the Symphony at 775-883-4154.
"On the Jazzy Side" is funded in part by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council, a
state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. The concert
preview is supported by a grant from Nevada Humanities. For more information, see
