Juneau Jazz & Classics will present the annual Singin’ in the Rain cabaret production on Friday, Oct. 14, at the Juneau Arts & Culture Center. The show begins at 7 p.m.
Singin’ in the Rain winds up a five-day intensive cabaret workshop, and includes more than 25 local singers performing jazz standards and their newest renditions in solo and group performances arranged by jazz pianist Barney McClure.
McClure’s performances have taken him all over Europe, Japan, Australia, Mexico, Canada and the U.S. He has backed such legends as Bob Hope, Bob Newhart and Steve Allen.
Singin’ in the Rain is presented by Juneau Jazz & Classics with sponsorship support from the Alaskan Brewing Company and the Juneau Empire.
Complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a no-host bar will be provided.
Tickets are $20 and are on sale at the JACC, Hearthside Books, Rainy Retreat and on the web at www.jazzandclassics.org.
The 26th annual Juneau Jazz & Classics Festival, which will benefit from funds raised during the this concert, is scheduled for May 4-19, 2012.
