Jazz vocalist Sharon Johnson and the Uptown Trio will entertain during The Choral Society of Pensacola’s annual fall fundraiser. At home in a variety of musical styles, Sharon has been described as a “charismatic performer…who knows how to charm an audience.” She has traveled the globe, singing with the United States Air Force Band, delighting audiences on cruise lines, and performing in venues ranging from The Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok and the Rixos Borovoe Resort in Kazakhstan to the Hollywood Palladium and the Luxor Las Vegas. Here in Pensacola, Sharon will be backed by the Uptown Trio, featuring guitarist Jim Armstrong, as she sings a mix of moody ballads and upbeat jazz favorites.
In addition to outstanding entertainment, Lyric Libations serves up an array of delicious hors d’oeuvres and tasty beverages in a distinctive setting bursting with musical instruments and gear of all kinds – the showroom of Blues Angel Music. Our host and sponsor is a 15,000 square foot, full-service, independently owned music store, named one of the Top 100 Dealers by the National Association of Music Merchants for six consecutive years and playing an active force in the area music scene.
