Elaine Delmar (BBC Big Band) presents her acclaimed interpretations of the music of George Gershwin and Cole Porter in a one off performance in The Hawth Studio on Sunday, February 15 (3pm).

Audiences will be treated to the tones of one of the great British jazz voices performing some of the 20th century’s most iconic music accompanied by pianist Brian Dee, Simon Thorpe on bass and Matt Home on drums.

Elaine performs classic arrangements of ‘S’Wonderful’, ‘Embraceable You’, ‘Begin the Beguine’, ‘Night and Day’, ‘Summertime’, ‘I Get A Kick Out Of You’ and many more.

Elaine’s musical path has taken her in many directions.

She has made numerous radio and television broadcasts and concerts singing with small groups, big bands and symphony orchestras around the world and she has starred with Michel Legrand, Stephane Grappelli, Andy Williams, Benny Carter and Herb Ellis. Equally at home in a concert hall, night club or theatre, Elaine thrives on communicating with her audience.

In 2006, she was nominated for the Radio 2 ‘Artist of the Year’ in the BBC Jazz Awards.

Tickets for the show cost £14 (£15 on the door) and are available from the box office on 01293 553636.
