100th Birthday Tribute to Ella Fitzgerald

Born April 25th, 1917, Ella became famous for her angelic, and yet superior, jazz-infused voice. From gospel to scat, Ella’s vocal and style range brought her recognition and praise. As Ella sang: "It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing".

To mark the occasion, on March 18th, 2017, JPEC will hold the first of many 100th birthday celebrations in Toronto for Ella Fitzgerald at the Studio Theatre at Toronto Centre of the Arts performed by the Darcy Hepner Jazz Orchestra featuring vocalist, Sophia Perlman.

JPEC is also offering 3 individuals the chance to win a pair of tickets to see the TRIBUTE. Go to the menu "News" and click on Contest.

For bios, photos and music clips of performers and all other information about JPEC, please see "Events" on website.
