May 9, 2011 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Valley Prebyterian Church 2010-2011 Concert Series – Special Musical Event

Earl & Alexis: AMERICAN SONGS, which had its debut at the Prescott Fine Arts Association Theatre in 2010, is the flagship recital series of their new production company Jazzoperetry (“Jazz-OP-ruh-tree”), Inc. The brainchild of Earl Hazell, Jazzoperetry Inc. will produce a variety of programs expressing his singular vision of combining jazz, opera and spoken-word poetry into one new, cohesive art form. Earl & Alexis: AMERICAN SONGS, however, is simply that: a program of American songs performed by Earl and Alexis, happily married opera singers who love working together as much as they love each other.
With the landmark folk song arrangements of Aaron Copland, like the lullaby “All the Pretty Little Horses”; haunting African-American Spirituals, like “Deep River”; and long-beloved masterpieces from the golden age of Musical Theatre, like “Ol’ Man River” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” Earl & Alexis have prepared an evening of music to reawaken your love affair with America in a way you’ll never forget.
