Shakespeare and All that Jazz

featuring Jazz Vocalist Christiana Drapkin

Vocalist Christiana Drapkin and her group celebrate the beauty and power of William Shakespeare's poetry and present it in lively, sometimes haunting jazz arrangements. Christiana was inspired to develop this project after finding a 1964 recording by Cleo Laine, "Shakespeare and all that Jazz", on Fontana Records. John Dankworth had composed many of these arrangements for his wife; the rest were some light-hearted settings by composer Arthur Young. Quite unjustly, they seemed to have been forgotten and deserve to be heard again. The same holds true for a poignant setting of a sonnet by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, from the suite "Such Sweet Thunder".

In concerts and workshops, the group intersperses the Shakespeare material with lighter but no lesser fare, standards from the Great American Songbook, which address the same age-old themes that were already sung about in the Bard's day.

The song selections are direct quotations from Shakespeare's plays and treatments of his sonnets in their entirety.

Presented in partnership with the Allegany Arts Council.
