Hazak presents The Great American Songbook and Beyond Sunday, May 19 1:00 pm - Brunch & Program
Katie Eagleson has been singing professionally for over 30 years with various groups, ranging from a cabaret duo to a 16-piece jazz orchestra. She has released four full-length CDs - all of which can be heard on Satellite Radio as well as several broadcast radio stations. Katie has also been teaching during that time, working one-on-one with singing students in her home and in the Philadelphia suburbs. As one reviewer wrote, “The Great American Songbook is a treasure of American culture, and Katie Eagleson is one of those rare vocalists whose artistry both preserves and inspires it.”
Lenny Pierro has performed professionally for over 30 years and has experience as producer, arranger, and performer on many CD recordings, the latest being Katie Eagleson’s “That Christmas Feeling” and his own Big Band Project. His work includes jazz big bands, R&B horn sections and small jazz groups. He has performed at concerts, festivals and clubs throughout the area. Lenny is currently a member of the music faculty at Bucks County Community College.
