GABRIELLE STRAVELLI SINGS WILLIE NELSON
WHEN: Thursday, July 16, at 7pm
WHERE: live streaming on the Axelrod’s Facebook page
The Axelrod Performing Arts Center begins The Anne & Sheldon Vogel Virtual Concert Series.
A rare musical experience—hearing the heart- wrenching, poetic and often funny songs of country legend Willie Nelson through the fearless voice of Gabrielle Stravelli, one of the jazz world’s most lyrical and versatile singers. As a US State Department Jazz Ambassador, Gabrielle has rightly placed Willie Nelson in the Great American Songbook, alongside Irving Berlin, Johnny Mercer and the Gershwins.
Gabrielle has appeared many times on the Axelrod stage, including big band tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Richard Rodgers and George Gershwin.
Performing from the theater, she will be joined by her trio, including Pat O’Leary, bass; Art Hirahara, piano and Eric Halvorson, drums, all of whom appear on her highly praised album PICK UP MY PIECES: GABRIELLE STRAVELLI SINGS WILLIE NELSON.
Among the favorite songs covered on the album are “Crazy,” written by Nelson and made famous by Patsy Cline, “Always on My Mind,” “Stardust,” “Somebody Pick Up My Pieces” as well as some rare gems too. Don’t miss Gabrielle tomorrow night!
The Axelrod is streaming these special virtual concerts live on Facebook. There is no admission fee but your donations and tips are greatly appreciated to keep our theater going during these most difficult times.
