JOHN ALCORN AND ALEX SAMARAS
August 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$20
In what has become an annual tradition, John Alcorn and Alex Samaras, two of our finest male jazz vocalists, are performing an evening of heartfelt, wide-ranging and exceptional vocal duets for the fourth time. Alex Samaras is one of the most remarkable voices of his generation, a “singer’s singer” in the jazz, new music and experimental vocals scenes. Perhaps best known for his illuminating contributions to the recording, “A Sondheim Jazz Project”, Alex brings unbridled joy and authenticity to every performance.
For over two decades, John Alcorn has been one of Canada’s premier exponents of “The Great American Songbook”, interpreting those classics with elegance, passion and an indelible sense of swing. The recipient of multiple awards for both his singing and his theatre compositions, his “Songbook” concerts – tributes to Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Rodgers and Hart and many others – have earned him the status of being one of Canada’s most notable and beloved jazz singers.
