The Levy Senior Center Foundation is kicking off the holidays with a special Jamming Jean virtual concert featuring harmonica legend Corky Siegel and blues and jazz diva Lynne Jordan on Dec. 10.
This online music spectacular is made possible by the LSCF and is open to all. The concert will include three recorded sets with Siegel and Jordan plus a lively post-concert conversation with Corky, Lynne and the producer of the show, John Anderson, a Grammy-nominated and Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker.
This is a time for coming together to celebrate the season, and we look forward to “seeing” you at this special event. This recorded production is free but registration is required. Please share the registration link with friends, family, colleagues and neighbors! The concert begins at 6pm, but you can log in starting at 5:30 pm.
Siegel is known internationally as one of the world’s great blues harmonica players, blues pianist, singer and writer of unusual songs, a Chamber Blues progenitor and sole pioneer/composer of award-winning revolutionary works that weave blues and classical forms together.
In a city brimming with classic blues and jazz divas, Chicago vocalist Jordan stands apart. Not only do her soaring vocals dip effortlessly into blues, jazz, funk, rock, and even country but her bawdy personality wins over any crowd. Her talent so dazzled the Second City that the late Chicago film critic Roger Ebert declared her his “favorite diva.”
The Levy Senior Center Foundation is proud to bring the talents of young, award-winning classical musicians to the Levy Senior Center.
The outstanding lineup continues to honor the memory of Fran Randall who loved classical music and played an important role in opening the current center.
