Saturday Concert Finale - Saturday, May 28, 2:00 p.m., "Thank You, Ella!" Jazz singer Kai Hoffman
An afternoon of jazz inspired by Ella Fitzgerald*s Great American Songbook recordings with London-based jazz singer Kai Hoffman (originally from Scituate!) and respected British saxophonist Fliss Gorst, with the fantastic, South Shore-based Jeff Williams Trio.  
"Thank You, Ella!" is Kai Hoffman*s vocal tribute to the First Lady of Song, and to her immense catalogue of recordings - especially during the years with Verve, when Ella Fitzgerald was not only recording some of the greatest *pop* albums ever made, but touring for forty to forty-five weeks per year. In her own small way, Kai would like to pay homage to the great woman who inspired her from childhood to sing with energy, excitement, and joyful abandon.    visit
