Swing into Spring with The Old School House Arts Centre’s final Jazz Cabaret of the season this Saturday, April 6.

Listen to the Laura Crema Trio while enjoying a dessert buffet and refreshments.

Vocalist Laura Crema’s influences are broad and diverse as she blends jazz with popular music and improvisation. She has studied at the Banff Centre for the Arts with legendary jazz vocalists Sheila Jordan and Jay Clayton and in Washington State with Nancy King and Kurt Elling.

Crema was featured, along side five of Canada's finest jazz vocalists, at the 2001 Divas for Life concert benefit at the Vogue Theatre.

Crema was also featured in CBC Radio's Studio One Jazz Series during the Vancouver International Jazz Festival 2002 and 2004 and she has also been showcased on CBC's Hotair, After Hours, Coastal Grooves, Richardson's Roundup, North by Northwest and Alberta's CKUA.

Crema’s CD Almost Blue was released under the Maximum Jazz record label/Universal Canada and has received excellent reviews and radio airplay in Canada, the U.S., and Europe.

Almost Blue has also been featured in Air Canada's Enroute magazine.

Crema’s latest recording Spring is Here, was released Fall of 2007 by Maximum Jazz/EMI Canada and was named Vocal Jazz Recording of the Year by Jazz Journalist James Hale (Downbeat, Coda) in the Annual Village Voice Jazz Poll Ballots.

Crema will be joined by accomplished pianist Ron Hadley and professional jazz bassist Ken Lister on April 6.

Admission is $20 including the dessert buffet.
