The band presents: Song and Dance with Ready Willing & Mabel
The Palos Verdes Symphonic Band will present Song and Dance with Ready Willing & Mabel on Sunday, July 16, 2017 at 6 PM outdoors on the meadow at the South Coast Botanic Garden (310-544-1948), 26300 Crenshaw Blvd. in the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Ready Willing & Mabel is a Los Angeles based vocal jazz quartet that has been singing together since 2003 and “has developed a loyal and enthusiastic following for its unique A Cappella style and lively personality.” Their sound has been described as “a cocktail for the ears!”
Featured will be popular and familiar compositions by Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Leonard Bernstein, Henry Mancini, George Gershwin, and Frank Loesser. The band will accompany Ready Willing & Mabel on some selections and complete the program with pieces that include the music from West Side Story, Guys and Dolls, and An American in Paris.
Tickets are only $10 each for adults, with free admission for children 12 years of age and younger, and are available in the Botanic Garden courtyard just prior to concert time. The band invites you to bring a blanket or comfortable lawn chair for outdoor seating and a picnic supper with non-alcoholic drinks if you wish; outside alcohol is not allowed, but beer and wine will be available for sale.
