CAU holds their 19th Jazz Under the Stars event on Saturday May 5th

Its that time of year again, when the weather is nice and outdoor festivals are in full effect.  One of my favorite and more calming outdoor events every year is Clark Atlanta's Jazz Under the Stars event.  They always have a great set-up of wine and art and a number of jazz bands to entertain.  

Rachelle Ferrell will headline the Clark Atlanta University (CAU) Guild’s 19th annual Jazz Under the Stars Benefit Concert Saturday, May 5, at 7 p.m. on the Harkness Hall Quadrangle on CAU’s campus, 223 James P. Brawley Drive, S.W. 30314.

Rachelle Ferrell is a recent arrival on the contemporary jazz scene, but her visibility on the pop/urban contemporary scene has boosted her audience's interest in her jazz recordings. Born and raised in Philadelphia, she started singing in the second grade at age 6. This no doubt contributed to the eventual development of her startling “six-and-change” octave range.

Hosted by the CAU Guild with UPS as the presenting sponsor, the concert will provide scholarships to CAU students in the performing arts and will be held rain or shine. The CAU Jazz Vocal Ensemble and the Jazz Orchestra also will perform.
