Support our local NABFEME sister Anna Maria Flechero and the Partnership for Affordable Housing.
Sunday, August 7, 2011, Partnership For Affordable Housing presents an amazing performance by Bay Area Jazz Vocalist, Anna Maria Flechero.
Oaktown Jazz Workshops @ Nadine's
55 Washington Street, Jack London Square
2:00PM - 6:00 P.M.
Anna Maria Flechero is a singer/songwriter who in 2004 released her first album, Journey Into The Fourteenth Hour. The album is a fusion of Jazz, Latin, and R&B rhythms and was described by Jazz Review as an "articulate and serious expression of vocal jazz at its finest." In 2007, Journey Into The Fourteenth Hour, received the "Jazz Group of the Year" award from the Bay Area Blues Society. Ms. Flechero's music can not only be heard in the Bay Area but in other parts of the world including Japan, Poland, and Korea.
All proceeds will be donated to Partnership For Affordable Housing (PFAH). PFAH is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide temporary and transitional housing assistance and life-essential services to low income seniors, displaced single parent families, and veterans. PFAH also provides services including job counseling, food distribution, and relapse prevention.
Nadine's (formerly Tony Roma's in Jack London Square) has been reopened and renamed under the Oaktown Jazz Workshops. The workshop was formed in 1994 by Khalil Shaheed to celebrate Jazz music as an art form by providing a foundation that preserves the rich and unique flavor to Bay Area youth. There are workshops for young people to come and play/study music under the direction of Mr. Shaheed and other professional Jazz players.
So, bring your friends and family to this event and help support a worthy cause. Entrance to the event is $20.00 at the door. For more information about Partnership For Affordable Housing go to www.pfah.net or call 510-430-0300.
