On Thursday, July 22 from 7 to 8pm, KPTZ presents a night of live music with vocalists Jean Lenke and Sarah Shea, accompanied by a full band. Tune in for Jazz, Folk Rock & Jazz-Rock Fusion. This radio concert is presented in collaboration with the Candlelight Concert Online series at Trinity United Methodist Church. The church will also be broadcasting a video feed of the performance through their website.
With a beautifully smooth and soulful voice, Jean Lenke has been creating diverse music for many years in the Philadelphia area and has now made her home in Washington’s great northwest. As a performing artist, composer, lyricist, arranger and bandleader, Jean’s fresh approach to Classic Jazz is influenced by an eclectic mix of musical genres that span a lifetime, looking always forward, towards the horizon. Jean Lenke and Sarah Shea have been collaborating on a children’s catalog of music, so they will be singing many songs that will be familiar and appeal to younger children, and adults alike.
