Holiday Jazz Show Features Miss Brown To You
By Tourism Industry Partner
NORMAN - Mary Reynolds (guitar, bass) and Louise Goldberg (piano, accordion) joined by special guest, Mark Giammario (drums), present a “Holiday Jazz” show at the Historic Santa Fe Depot, Sunday, December 12. The concert is part of the Performing Arts Studio's Jazz Concert Series beginning at 7:30 pm. The concert is free, but donations are accepted. Refreshments will be provided.
All from one musical duo - passion and humor and total commitment to the emotional power of the music they love. Miss Brown to You refuses to be confined to one style, one period. Instead they prefer to expand the horizon of every genre they play, even while upholding the traditions of the musicians that have inspired them in the past. The musicians that make up Miss Brown to You are capable of an eclectic abandon that few other bands attempt, and they are looking for an audience that appreciates a broad palate of musical colors.
A talented songwriter herself, Mary Catherine Reynolds is an acclaimed interpreter of the songs of Emily Kaitz, Linda Waterfall and Ilene Weiss among others, and she can call upon an eclectic repertoire of traditional material and American popular songs.
Reynolds now lives in Oklahoma City, where she continues to play with the band Miss Brown to You and the vocal group, The Sisters of Swing, along with other projects in traditional, country, jazz and pop music.
Louise Goldberg, born and raised in New York, holds a Bachelor of Music from Boston University and a Master of Music from Oklahoma City University. Calling Oklahoma her home, she taught music and science at Westminster Middle School from 1979 - 1998.
Together, Reynolds and Goldberg are Miss Brown To You. The duo can capture audiences with their subtle ballads, soulful blues, sophisticated bop and swinging classical jazz.
