The singer that all other singers call the best – Ella Fitzgerald. This is the story of a young woman who against impossible odds achieved fame as a Jazz singer by the age of seventeen. She would go on to perform around the world for another 58 years. Nanette Perrotte tells Ella's story and sings her signature songs: Loverman, It Don't Mean a Thing, Misty, Tisket a Tasket, and Azure Blue. Nanette Perrotte has a BA in Jazz Compostion from the Berklee College of Music, an MA Ed from Lesley University and has been a professional Jazz singer for 25 years. She now teaches Music History and Voice at both Endicott College and The New Hampshire Institute of Art. She is the director and founder of the John Singer Sargent Choir as well as being a member of Hancock's Norway Pond Festival Singers. This new performance allows Perrotte to combine her singing, storytelling and teaching talents to bring together Ella Fitzgerald's masterful work and complex life story. Free and open to all. Not to be missed!
