Lucy Iffla sings Ella Fitzgerald
Tuesday 10 December 7.00pm
Come and join us at the Ellington this December to pay tribute to the one and only Queen of Jazz, Ella Fitzgerald. With sultry ballads and upbeat swing tunes we showcase Ella’s greatest hits.
Jazz Vocalist, Lucy Iffla (20), is currently completing a Bachelor of Music at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. Playing alongside some incredible established musicians and WAAPA lecturers, including the WA Youth Jazz Orchestra, Lucy has developed her talent and showcases an elegant and timeless voice.
Lucy’s passion for Jazz started when she discovered an Ella and Basie vinyl at 14 and with the help of some wonderful musicians, Lucy’s dream of paying tribute to Ella has finally come true! Making this dream possible is a powerhouse line-up with Ricki Malet (Trumpet), Daniel Sunsjr (Drums), Ben Matthews (Piano), Alistair Peel (Bass) and Freddie Grigson (Guitar).
Lucy will take you through the musical journey of Ella starting from her early classics through to her final crooners.
Come and enjoy a sensational evening of Lucy Sings Ella.
“The only thing better than singing is more singing”.
