Volare take flight in Cathedral Square
SummerTimes Free Lunchtime Concert
Friday 16 February 2001, 12.30pm to 2.00pm
'Volare' consists of Elizabeth Braggins, Nicki Reece, and Susan de Jong. This dynamic trio will perform in Cathedral Square on Friday 16 February.
All three members of 'Volare' have been performing individually for many years and have a rich history in jazz and swing. Previously known as 'The Tigerlilies', this recently renamed jazz vocal trio regularly perform at Tuskers in Beckenham, and are becoming well known for their polished performances.
'Volare' have created their own brand of swinging jazz, sandwiched between layers of lush vocal harmony and covering classic songs from artists like Peggy Lee, The Andrews Sisters, and Dean Martin from the 40's and 50's, through to contemporary tunes from the likes of The Doors and Manhattan Transfer. Liz plays piano while Nicki and Susan use a variety of percussion instruments, to create their unique style of Jazz music.
The SummerTimes Lunchtime Concert Series continues in Cathedral Square from 12.30pm to 2.00pm every Friday until 2 March.
