Blossom Time at Frankie’s

Blossom Time at Frankie’s

Frankie's Jazz Club 08:00 pm

As it turns out, there is nearly an endless supply of cute Blossom Dearie tunes for this band to revive!  Sarah Kennedy is returning to Frankie’s for another night as the notoriously cute, Blossom Dearie.  You will be delighted and surprised at the accuracy of Sarah’s Blossom impression: you’re allowed to giggle.  Blossom Dearie was a Brooklyn born jazz singer, pianist and composer, who became famous for a girlish and mousy voice as well as a unique sense of time and phrasing. The music abounds with satire, lyrical wit, and adorable Tin Pan Alley tune arrangements. Sarah Kennedy is joined by some of Vancouver’s finest musicians to bring to life Blossom’s legacy.  Tickets $15 added to cheque.  Reservations recommended via Frankie’s Jazz Club

The Unitarian Church of Vancouver 10:30 am

Sarah Kennedy and Nick Peck have been invited to provide music for the United Nations Day service with the Vancouver Unitarians.  This will be a special selection of music expressing the themes of  an anti-war and universal connection.  The performance will be part of a service including a talk  from this year’s UN Gibbard Award winner in support of “The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all” and the vision and effective work of the UN.

The Vancouver Unitarians have created a community open to diverse beliefs and spiritual practices with stated values as follows:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  • Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations;
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

The service begins at 10:30am in the gorgeous and acoustically ambient Sanctuary depicted.
