Tony-Award winning singer/actress Christine Ebersole performs Strings Attached with jazz violinist Aaron Weinstein and his trio for the annual Kathryn W. Stein Memorial Concert May 16 at 4 PM at the 92nd Street Y.
Ebersole and the trio perform classic standards from the 20s and 30s including "Jitterbug Waltz" by Fats Waller, "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye" by Cole Porter, "This Time the Dream's on Me" by Johnny Mercer and "Shall We Dance" by George Gershwin. Strings Attached was performed in a sold-out engagement at Birdland Jazz Club in November 2011.
Aaron Weinstein has been credited with the "rebirth of the hot jazz violin" and has performed at Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Blue Note, Birdland, the Iridium, and at festivals in England, France, Switzerland, Iceland and Israel.
