Congratulations to Keith Jackson, who won a pair of tickets to hear A tribute to Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday at the NAC Fourth Stage on Saturday, April 6! The tickets were generously donated by Karen Oxorn, Dominique Forest and Nicole Ratté.

This tribute show partners three of Ottawa's ladies of jazz for an unforgettable evening of music and fun. It will explore their performing and recording careers as well as very different personal stories through the veil of a shared jazz festival bill in the 1950s.  Read our interview with the vocalists about this concert.

Karen Oxorn, Nicole Ratté et Dominique Forest vous prépare un répertoire inspiré des concerts du Newport Jazz Festival de 1957 de deux des plus grandes interprètes féminines de la chanson américaine.

The correct answer to our skill testing question "Who are two (or more) of the songwriters whose music will be featured?" could be found at It was any two names from the following sentence: "The concert will feature jazz standards from the live album by well-known songwriters including George and Ira Gershwin; Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields; Rodgers and Hart; Vernon Duke and Yip Harburg; Sigmund Romberg and Oscar Hammerstein II, and Sonny Burke, Lionel Hampton and Johnny Mercer."
