SIX VIVA LES DIVAS SHOWS SCHEDULED AT THE WAREHOUSE THEATRE
Singers Jean Calvert and Whitney Walters take the stage with a smokin' six-piece band to deliver standards from The Great American Songbook, interspersed with history and personal commentary.
We had our first show there on September 8th. Here's a photo from that one:
I think our October 27th show celebrating autumn and Halloween was our best yet, and the set design at the Warehouse was stunningly perfect for it! Take a look:
We thought about having a Christmas show, but honestly there's so much going on during the holidays, we decided to take a bit of a break.
No worries, though! We're already working on our Valentine's show, so be sure to mark your calendars for Sunday, February 9th, at 8 pm, for a very special "date night" place to be!

Besides having my own band, I get to work with the talented Whitney Walters of Groove Planet! Together, we are the Divas from our theater/civic center-style show, Viva les Divas! A Celebration of Jazz and Blues. (Clicking here will take you to our Facebook page as our website is under renovation right now, but we need you to go there and "like" us anyway.)
On June 23, 2012, we had an exciting, well-received show at Centre Stage Theater. What a professional and friendly staff they have! We are having conversations with others, and as soon as we sign on the dotted line, you'll be the first to know.

In the News, June 12, 2012:
Have you heard the news? I just found out this morning, and what a way to start the day!
The Divas have an announcement to make: Beginning this Fall, we will be doing a series of VIVA LES DIVAS! A Celebration of Jazz and Blues at The Warehouse Theatre! This morning, we received word that the Metropolitan Arts Council panel believed in our project so much that they have given us a $1500 grant. Also, we have one sponsor already on board and are looking for others. If you would like to sponsor these shows for advertising and a goodie bag, please write Jean Calvert at firstname.lastname@example.org More details will be out soon. In the meantime, we are working hard on brand new arrangements!
