The Syncopators present ‘A Tribute to Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald’

The concert will start at the roots of jazz with its most influential figure, Louis Armstrong, as he was creating and shaping America’s new art form in the 20’s. It will progress through his big band era of the 30’s to his mature style and the famous vocal duets he created with America’s First Lady of Song - the fabulous Ella Fitzgerald.

Who better to present this in Australia than one of its premier jazz/swing groups – ‘The Syncopators’, who have presented many highly acclaimed concerts including ‘Tribute to Bing Crosby’ and ‘Best of British’ at the Victorian Arts Centre. They will team up with the vocal skills and musicality of Australia’s foremost ‘Ella’ exponent - Yvette Johansson - to create a delightful program that is sure to be both entertaining and exhilarating, one that sold out both performances at the Victorian Arts Centre’s Hamer Hall.
