The Ladies of Swing

CARMEN BRADFORD guest singer
PATRICK REYNOLDS conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

The Dayton Philharmonic and guest vocalist Carmen Bradford bring to the stage a program featuring hits performed and recorded by the great Swing legends Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan and more. Carmen uses this collection of timeless standards and songs, made popular by the great vocalists of the swing era, to guide the audience with her dazzling vocal style and honor these incredible vocal songstresses.

Carmen Bradford is jazz royalty. Her grandfather Melvin Moore sang with Dizzy Gillespie’s Big Band and with the Ink Spots, and her parents are legendary coronetist and composer Bobby Bradford and world-renowned jazz vocalist, composer, and author Melba Joyce. It was no surprise, then, that at the age of 22, Carmen was discovered and hired by William “Count” Basie and became the featured vocalist in the legendary Count Basie Orchestra for nine years.

Carmen Bradford and the Dayton Philharmonic bring a showstopping performance to the Schuster as together they honor the The Ladies of Swing.
