Upcoming Events - Spring 2018


May 26th at GigSpace, 953 Gladstone Ave.

7:30pm

UNSUNG

In these modern times, we are blessed to have an immense musical universe from which to choose. In this library there are many beautiful songs and composers who deserve to be heard, but seem rarely to get the attention they deserve. Who knows why?

 

For this performance we have chosen a repertoire of songs composed by women. Some familiar and some more obscure and or forgotten.

 

Geri Childs and Dominique Forest, accompanied by Art Lawless on piano and Tom Denison on bass will present music from Alberta Hunter, PeggyLee, Dorothy Fields, Laura Nyro, Nora Jones, Phoebe Snow, Zaz and more.

 

Tickets $20 @ GigSpace Ottawa

More Than Magic

magic0002More Than Magic, Geri Childs' current CD, contains some of her favourite songs from the movies and the folk and pop world and is a personal reflection on the songs that have influenced Geri not only as a singer, but as the person she is today.

 

The music was arranged in a quiet jazz style by Ottawa composer/arranger Mark Ferguson. The musicians accompanying Geri on More Than Magic include Mark Ferguson on piano and trombone, John Geggie on bass, Margaret Tobolowska on cello and Rob Graves on percussion.

 

The CD and/or individual tracks can be purchased and downloaded at

Music That Makes Me Dance

In my musical career I have accumulated a very large repertoire of songs.

For my next concert on April 23rd, dug out of a dusty old file folder will be a mix of memorable and melodic tunes. You can expect to hear the music of Ellington, Gershwin, Monk, Ivan Lins, … [Read More...]
