Roseanna Vitro is returning to St. Louis to perform at 8 p.m. Saturday, December 5 at the Ozark Theatre.
Vitro (pictured) will present what's being billed as an "American Composers Holiday Concert," featuring the music of Ray Charles, Randy Newman, Bill Evans, Duke Ellington, and Clare Fischer. Fischer's compositions were the focus of Vitro's most recent album Clarity: Music of Clare Fischer, which was released last year.
She'll be backed for this performance by a group of St. Louis musicians including Kim Portnoy (piano), Ric Vice (bass), Danny Campbell (trumpet), Clancey Newell (drums), and Jeff Anderson (tenor sax).
The show is being produced by Dorothy Edwards of Robbie's House of Jazz, the now-closed club nearby in Webster Groves where Vitro last performed in St. Louis in September 2013. Tickets are $20 in advance via http://robbieshouseofjazz.com/, $25 at the door.
Edited 10/244/14 to correct date of concert.
