Young Audiences/Springboard Benefit Concert -- St. Louis Jazz Quartet Reunion
Karla heads to her hometown of St. Louis for a special reunion concert of the venerable group, the St. Louis Jazz Quartet.
The St. Louis Jazz Quartet, featuring beloved jazz vocalist Jeanne Trevor, performed hundreds of concerts over decades as part of the national Young Audiences Arts for Learning outreach. Karla performed with the group during her college years, and Ms. Trevor was one of her earliest mentors in jazz.
Today, Young Audiences is affiliated with the Springboard for the Arts foundation. For this evening, Springboard is hosting a fundraiser that brings together the many fine musicians who have been a part of St. Louis Jazz Quartet over the years. The event also honors Jeanne Trevor's decades-long devotion to jazz, theatre and arts education.
The concert will be held at Touhill Performing Arts Center at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
