Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra presents The Ladies of Jazz featuring vocalist Heidi Schmidt on Friday, March 24, at 7:30 pm at The Schoolhouse in Parker.

The Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra’s (CJRO) quartet honors the women of jazz as part of the Friday Night Jazz Series led by vocalist Heidi Schmidt. Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Nancy Wilson are just three of the iconic women featured in the program at the Schoolhouse in Parker.

Musical numbers include “I Can’t Give You Anything but Love,” “God Bless the Child,” and “Willow Weep For Me”.

Heidi Schmidt has danced with gypsies, shared coffee with Bedouins, sipped tea in the House of Lords, and sung jazz for Transylvanian Franciscan monks – her delivery is shaped by rich experience. Heidi launched her professional singing career in Eastern Europe, refined it by touring throughout Western Europe, and produced three albums while living in Romania. Now back in her hometown Denver, Heidi has won numerous awards and earned a following on the local jazz scene.

The all-woman quartet features Briana Harris (Saxophone), Tenia Nelson (Piano), Kim Bird (Bass), and Jill Fredericks (Drums).
