OPENING NIGHT! March 21 2012!

Preparing to announce all of the dates for WWJF 2012 soon. This is one that is already making press.
Opening Night of the 2nd annual Washington Women in Jazz Festival this March 21st at the Atlas! The performance will feature the "WWJF All-Stars", the finest instrumentalists from last years festival; Sarah Hughes, Alto Saxophone, Melissa Gardiner, Trombone, Leigh Pilzer, Baritone Saxophone, Karine Chapdelaine, Bass, and me, Amy K Bormet on Piano and Vocals. This is a special one-night only show with NYC-based DC-bred drummer Allison Miller. Jazz maestro Brad Linde has put together a serious offering of jazz music to rival any series on the East Coast. The Atlas is proving to be an artistic boon, not just for the H St and DC community, but for the jazz scene of the whole Mid-Atlantic region.
