From Jazz to Soul: Rhonda Denét and the Silver Fox Songs Trio
The Farmington Libraries welcome the extraordinary vocal talents of Rhonda Denét, who, accompanied by the Silver Fox Songs Trio, will perform a collection of jazz standards and soul classics that spans 5 decades. You’ll enjoy hits from a time when the "First Lady Of Song," Ella Fitzgerald graced the stage to when the "Queen of Soul," Aretha Franklin ruled the airways. Homage will be paid not only to Ella and Aretha, but also to jazz stylists Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington, Nina Simone, and Nancy Wilson as well as soul divas Etta James, Martha Reeves, Mary Wells, and Gladys Knight. After celebrating all who have influenced her, Rhonda will share some of her original music. Through the music, the magic, and the message, there is bound to be something for everyone!
