“Flying High” celebrates the remarkable journeys of iconic jazz vocalists such as Billie Holiday, Anita O’Day, Lena Horne, Peggy Lee, Jo Stafford, Rosemary Clooney, Ella Fitzgerald, and more. These extraordinary women, initially known as “canaries,” not only graced the stages with their incredible voices but also broke free from the confines of their roles to become renowned solo artists, leaving an indelible mark on the world of jazz.

After a triumphant debut at New York City’s Birdland Club, where they played for three sold-out nights, Jazz at the Ballroom brings this spectacular revue to the Northwest Jazz Festival. The performance will feature the exceptional vocal talents of rising stars Olivia Chindamo and Vanessa Perea, alongside Champian Fulton, delivering the music made famous by these jazz canaries as they soared to new heights in their solo careers.
