Southport, CT - One of New York’s most beloved jazz and swing bands -- Svetlana and the Delancey Five -- will perform a rare local area concert on the front lawn of Trinity Episcopal Church on Saturday May 15 at 3:00 pm. This special event is open to ALL members of the community regardless of their religious affiliation.
Led by vocalist Svetlana Shmulyian, the internationally-known quintet plays a high-energy combination of 1920s-40s jazz and swing standards along with contemporary original music, all backed by the band members' harmonizing and virtuoso instrumentals. Svetlana and the Delancey Five has headlined many sold-out shows in the US, including such premier venues as the Blue Note, Iridium, and Joe's Pub. The band has toured internationally, appeared on national and international TV programs, and been featured in numerous news and music publications, including the Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, All About Jazz, Broadway World, and more.
“We’re enormously proud to present Svetlana and the Delancey Five to our community,” said Robert Kwan, Music Director at Trinity Southport. “This will be a fun, family event that will make everyone smile. We are looking forward to an afternoon of great jazz and swing favorites geared toward all ages. There will be something for everyone.”
