The show will feature toe-tapping favorites by Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Dorothy Fields, Duke Ellington and other great American tunesmiths.

He has shared the stage with Charles Neville, Sheila Jordan, Jaki Byard, Geri Allen, and other notables, and is a veteran of the illustrious Aardvark Jazz Orchestra (44th season). Mark Leighton is acclaimed as a jazz and classical guitarist, performs across the Northeast, and serves on the faculties of Colby College and St. George's School. His teachers include Robert Sullivan, David Leisner and Sharon Isbin. Ted Powers' career in jazz, blues, and pop includes several years as a solo performer in the south of France and tap-dancing in the U.S. with the legendary Jimmy "Sir Slyde" Mitchell. Pamela Powers has performed and taught in the United States, Germany and England. She studied with Harold Nicholas of the iconic Nicholas Brothers and with renowned Broadway choreographer Charles Hughes.
