UWindsor vocalist to headline jazz divas concert

Shahida Nurullah, UWindsor jazz voice instructor, headlines a concert on the Michigan grounds of the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House on Friday, August 24.

With the historic house as the backdrop, jazz vocal traditions born from the big-band swing era will be honoured at “Detroit Divas Sing, Sing, Sing,” a concert featuring three legendary vocalists—Nurullah, Ursula Walker and Judy Cochill—and the Detroit Jazz Festival Orchestra.

Songs from the American songbook will highlight the unique styles of each artist and bring the region’s powerful music history to life.

The show begins at 7 p.m. at the Ford House, 1100 Lake Shore Road, Grosse Pointe Shores. Get more information, including directions and ticket details, on the Ford House Web site.
