Victoria is blessed with a bevy of talented women, and few are more talented than the foursome of Maria Manna, Miranda Sage, Maureen Washington and Melinda Whitaker. These great ladies of jazz are all accomplished songstresses and recording artists in their own right and combined they create a night to remember.
The Cridge Centre for the Family is blessed to have them joining forces to raise the roof of Alix Goolden Hall– and support for The Cridge Respitality Service – on Friday, March 30, 2012. All proceeds from this high-class concert will support the families of The Cridge Respitality Service, now in its eleventh year of service to the community!
A very special guest for the evening will be Sky Mundell, the 2011 winner of Vancouver Island’s Got Talent, whose family benefitted from The Cridge Respitality Service. Sky was born with cerebral palsy, but despite being blind and hearing impaired, has become a champion jazz pianist. We’re honoured and excited that he’ll be part of the concert.
The Cridge Respitality Service makes a real difference for families. As one grateful mom recently wrote after experiencing a Respitality night,
“Checking in was like walking into a dream. Everything was beautiful, quiet and calm. For 24 hours, time stopped. We actually relaxed (and slept) for the first time in months. It was a magical interlude. Now our batteries are recharged enough to face the next set of 'adventures'.”
The divas in their gowns and gentleman musicians in their tuxes promise to make One Great Night a concert to remember, as they showcase some of the greatest ballads and standards of the last century. Jazz lovers and community supporters alike are promised a great night out!
This fun evening of music and celebration is a great value, as adult tickets are only $20 and tickets for seniors (65+) and youth (18 or younger) are just $15.
