All About Ella with Catherine Summers

 The Ella Fitzgerald Story

Catherine Summers and her 5-piece swinging jazz band bring you the songs and stories of the Queen of Jazz, Ella Fitzgerald. 

Enjoy a night with Perth’s own Jazz Songstress, Catherine Summers and her dazzling Quintet. Summers’ presents a host of toe-tapping Ella favourites, from her nursery rhyme first no. 1 hit to classic songs from her Duke Ellington, Irving Berlin and Cole Porter songbooks.

Spirited singer Catherine Summers delivers emotive performances of Ella’s well-known classics around titbits of history from Ella Fitzgerald’s incredible career. Hear about Ella’s early life in Harlem on the streets, her painful shyness, a lucky chance encounter with Marilyn Monroe to becoming the first African American women to win a Grammy.

“Catherine Summers is spirited host, classy comedienne and singing talent to boot, all in one confident and spunky package. She brings sass, style and talent to the stage like no singer I’ve seen this Fringe season (21’). Catch her performance before the sun sets, on select nights at stylish Lamont’s Bishops House in Perth.”
