A beautifully romantic, charming and entertaining evening awaits March 22 when the Georgia Straight Jazz Society presents bilingual vocalist Heather Keizur and pianist Steve Christofferson in concert at The Avalanche Bar & Grill in Courtenay.
It was three years ago when the Portland, Oregon pair first charmed the GSJS with their performance. They were so popular that they returned to memorably play in the summer Jazz at the Gardens on Anderton series in July 2015.
Keizur and Christofferson have performed together for more than nine years, but when they perform together, it feels as if they have been doing so all their lives.
In August 2017, Keizur and Christofferson celebrated the release of their premier duo CD, Moon River.
Christofferson’s piano, melodica, and vocals add a powerful depth to the duo’s music.
The concert will include songs from Moon River, including the title track and the classic Jaques Brel song, Ne me quitte pas, Tony Bennett’s How Do You Keep the Music Playing, Banda Magda’s upbeat French samba, Amours t’es la?, and duets such as Cole Porter’s, Let’s Misbehave.
For technical reasons, showtime for this week only is 7 p.m.
Admission is $10 for club members and $12 for non-members. More information about forthcoming jazz performances is available at georgiastraightjazz.com.
