Chair, Resident Recitals of Riderwood

Mark your calendar for April 25, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. in the Chapel, when Resident Recitals of  Riderwood will present our annual spring concert, “Ragtime, Showtime and All That Jazz! “If you enjoy toe-tapping upbeat, early 20th century music, you won’t want to miss this free concert. Doors open at 7:00 p.m..

Fellow residents Jim Unger (piano) and Henry Plotkin (violin) will perform rags by Scott Joplin, James Scott and James Lamb; pianist Walt Rybeck will play two original Gershwin piano arrangements; Teddi Kaplan will play “Bumble Boogie;” and Elizabeth White will give us the piano jazz classic, “Dizzy Fingers.”

The “Singing Swingers Quartet” (Ray. Roth, Cidney Roth, Jean Dudley and Joe Jones) will perform pieces by Cole Porter and Johnny Mercer. Paul Forbes will be singing some of your favorite Frank Sinatra classics, including “Come Fly With Me” and “New York,  New York.”  Finally, our favorite guest jazz vocalist, Karen Oxorn, will be back.  She will give us her rendition of “All That Jazz,” from the Kander and Ebb hit show “Chicago.”
