Jazz Vocalist, Toomey Trio Kick Off 1st Diehn Concert

Jazz vocalist Julie Kelly will join the John Toomey Trio on Monday, Sept. 29, for the first Diehn Concert Series performance of the fall semester. The concert will be at 8 p.m. in Chandler Recital Hall of the Diehn Fine and Performing Arts Center.

Strongly influenced by Brazilian music, Kelly has performed with Carlos Lyra and Luis Eca in Rio de Janeiro, and later studied at the Juilliard School of Music in New York. She moved to Los Angeles in 1980 and shortly after that began her recording career. Her latest CD, "Everything I Love," was released in 2006.

Jazz critic Leonard Feather once said, "Julie Kelly radiates a sense of joy and spontaneity. Listening to her, you are reminded that jazz singing is still alive and well."

Kelly will also give a master class at 1 p.m. Sept. 29 in the recital hall.

Tickets to the concert are $15 for general admission and $10 for ODU students. To purchase tickets or for more information, call 683-5305.
