Janet Rutland Sings Gershwin

Thursday, June 14, 2018 - 7:30pm to Friday, June 15, 2018 - 7:30pm
Charles E. Norman Theatre

"Janet Rutland Sings Gershwin" is the 14th SummerStage cabaret show for this popular vocalist. "In a way, I'm coming full circle," Rutland notes. "The first cabaret-style show I ever produced — 20 years ago — was all Gershwin material for Tulsa Jazz Society. In this year's show, I'll share a little about the lives of those amazing brothers, George and Ira, and present their songs in the best way I know how with some of the finest musicians in Oklahoma." 

Rutland will be backed by a jazz trio made up of Scott McQuade on piano, Nathan Eicher on upright bass, and Jared Johnson on drums. Terry Baxter and Barry Hensley will be guest vocalists.
