    • Ladies of Jazz: A tribute to the legendary jazz vocal hits of the 1930s, '40s, and '50s: Jazz vocalists Rhenda Fearrington, Shakera Jones and Julie Charnet are three of the finest, most individual and unique artists in this region and beyond. These singing masters will join forces on Saturday, October 1 for a superb show called “DECADES: Ladies of Jazz”—a tribute to the legendary jazz hits of the 1930s to 1950s-- held at the Philadelphia Ethical Society for a 7:00pm show. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the door or in advance via Ticketleap at julie-charnet.ticketleap.com/decades. Concert goers are invited to BYO and/or light snacks. The Ethical Society is located on 1903 South Rittenhouse Square.

      Rhenda Fearrington, a New York native, is a charismatic dynamo who sings jazz standards and originals with a contagious energy that is always inventive and always swings. She has sung back-up for Roberta Flack and Mtume, spent years as a commercial/jingle singer, and toured for 15 years with her “Feel Sooo Good” show, a motivational children’s program. Outside of music, Fearrington is a writer, well-read jazz blogger, and columnist. “In essence, “I consider myself a storyteller,” she told the prestigious “Driven” website. “Whether it’s in the music field or for the literary field, I have exercised my ability to express myself a number of ways.”

      Singer/songwriter Shakera Jones, who holds a Masters Degree in Jazz Studies, has been singing since the age of four. Truly a jazz vocal master with an impressive technique, Jones intelligently applies this technique to jazz standards, originals, and, from time to time, contemporary pop—songs in her set lists include tunes written by everyone from Jill Scott to Thelonious Monk-- in a sometimes soulful, sometimes jazzy, sometimes bluesy, but always individual style.

      There likely isn’t a venue in this region where Julie Charnet has not performed. What sets Charnet apart, in addition to her singular interpretive powers and sheer sense of joy as a performer, is her eclectic and always-entertaining repertoire. The songs she sings include classic swing, jazz, blues, show tunes, and rarely heard material dating back to the 1920s. The Philadelphia Inquirer was right on the mark when they deemed Julie Charnet to be “like torch singers of yore.”

      Accompanying these wonderful singers are the crème of our area’s instrumentalists: pianist Adam Faulk, bassist Nimrod Speaks, drummer Jon Ball, and saxophonist Tim Price.

  • Bootless Stageworks : Time: 8:00 PM- 10:00 PM Location: Bootless Stageworks Description: Musical of the Living Dead takes audiences on a rip-roaring journey beyond the grave with its satirical send-ups of classic zombie films and musical theater. The curtain opens on 10 survivors of a recent zombie apocalypse, trapped in a farmhouse and willing to try anything to escape. Writers Marc Lewallen and Brad Younts gleefully fulfill horror-film conventions in creating the melee of the zombie apocalypse as we watch the cast of memorable characters – all brought together seeking refuge from a ravenous horde of brain-eating (and dancing) zombies. The zombies and humans alike take part in the memorable show tunes, original songs inspired from such disparate sources as George Gershwin and Green Day – complete with tap dancing, power ballads and street-smart rapping zombies. Musical of the Living Dead is a hysterical, hummable, 4D zombie doomsday adventure complete with Bootless’ infamous The Pit Splatter Zone ever.

  • Brandywine River Museum of Art: Time: 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Location: 1 Hoffman's Mill Rd, Chadds Ford, PA 19317 Description: NEW TERRAINS: AMERICAN PAINTINGS FROM THE RICHARD M. SCAIFE BEQUEST Included with Museum admission New Terrains presents over twenty-five important works of American art from Richard M. Scaife, a Pittsburgh philanthropist and former trustee of the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art. The exhibition showcases paintings by artists that are new to the collection, such as Hudson River School painters Martin Johnson Heade, John Kensett, and Albert Bierstadt, whose luminous, contemplative views of nature influenced the grand tradition of mid-nineteenth-century landscape painting in America. Other exciting introductions to the collection through the Scaife bequest are works by American impressionists William Merritt Chase, Theodore Robinson, and Edward Redfield, Julian Alden Weir and others. These late-nineteenth and early twentieth-century artists changed the course of American landscape painting through their adaptation of trends in European art. Their interpretive approach to rendering their surroundings with vibrant color and energetic brushwork is amply demonstrated in the exhibition. These paintings and more featured in New Terrains honor Richard Scaife and his generous vision for the Brandywine and represents a milestone in the museum’s collection of American art.

  • Brandywine River Museum of Art: Time: 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Location: Brandywine River Museum of Art Description: Flowery Thoughts: Ceramic Vases & Floral Ornament at Winterthur. Since antiquity, humans have been fascinated by the beauty of flowers. They created special containers to hold the blooms, reproduced flat images of flora on surfaces or, alternatively, modeled flowers in three dimensions. In this exhibit, Leslie B. Grigsby, Winterthur’s Senior Curator of Ceramics & Glass, presents a selection of some of the enormous range of ceramic vases and floral-decorated wares from the Winterthur Museum collection. These eye-catching objects primarily date from the 1700s and 1800s and, variously, were produced in America, Europe and Asia. The high-fashion wares among these ceramics originally found homes in elegant settings, while other objects reflect what was enjoyed by those of lesser means. Some of the featured floral designs studiously imitate imagery from botanical publications, while others display a freedom and originality not expressed in Nature.

  • UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation: Location: State of Delaware Description: The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) is seeking grant applications from families in need of financial assistance to help pay for their child’s health care treatments, services or equipment not covered, or not fully covered, by their commercial health insurance plan. In Delaware, very few families applied for grants last year. That’s why we are reaching out to you, as a broadcaster, because we know you are committed to informing your listeners about important issues such as this that will inform listeners about the foundation and encourage them to apply for grants. We created a Public Service Announcement campaign, to encourage parents and legal guardians to apply for grants of up to $5,000 (lifetime maximum of $10,000 per child) to help pay for medical services and equipment such as physical, occupational and speech therapy, counseling services, surgeries, prescriptions, wheelchairs, orthotics, eyeglasses and hearing aids by completing an online application at www.uhccf.org; there is no deadline. Grants are available for medical expenses families have incurred 60 days prior to the date of application as well as for ongoing and future medical needs. To be eligible for a grant, children must be 16 years of age or younger. Families must meet economic guidelines, reside in the United States and have a commercial health insurance plan. Families do not need to have insurance through UnitedHealthcare to be eligible. Since 2007, UHCCF has awarded over 10,000 grants valued at more than $29 million to children and their families across the United States for treatments associated with medical conditions such as cancer, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, diabetes, hearing loss, autism, cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome, ADHD and cerebral palsy. Your radio station serves as a vital link in getting out important health information to the public. The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation hopes you can partner with us and broadcast this important health message.
