Happy International Women’s Day! Here’s to all the powerful women and girls who have made this world a better place. If you’re looking to spoil a special woman in your life (even if that woman is you) we think a candlelight jazz tribute to a female icon is the perfect way to spend an evening.
Throughout March, The Hayden Orpheum will be hosting candlelight concerts paying tribute to three female icons in the jazz industry. From Nina Simone’s soulful and powerful voice to Aretha Franklin’s iconic gospel-inspired hits, and Amy Winehouse’s unique fusion of jazz and soul, these three women have left an indelible mark on the music world. Through their talent and hard work, they have inspired generations of musicians and paved the way for women in the industry.
The music industry has long been a male-dominated space, with female artists struggling to break through and achieve the same level of recognition and success as their male counterparts. These three icons, however, defied the odds and blazed a trail for future generations of female musicians.
Experience the magic of these incredible musicians in the intimate and atmospheric setting of the Hayden Orpheum, as the room is bathed in the warm glow of candlelight. Each concert will feature a talented jazz band that will perform some of the most beloved songs from these artists’ catalogues.
Whether you’re a long-time fan of these iconic women or are just discovering their music, these events will solidify a love and appreciation for jazz. So come out and celebrate the amazing contributions that women have made to the music industry. Let’s honour these incredible women and continue to empower the next generation of female musicians.
