Jazz Vocalist Peterson Performs Today



Jazz in Arizona and The Payson Friends of Jazz will present well-known piano vocalist Shirley Peterson in a concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 21 at Community Presbyterian Church, 800 W. Main St.

The performance is free, but a donation is gratefully accepted.

Peterson's big break came when she auditioned for work at Jilly's, a famous Chicago night club. Jilly's close friend, Frank Sinatra was on hand, and he told Jilly to give Ms. Peterson the job. Since then, she has gone on to perform throughout the U.S. and Mexico. Currently she works Valley lounges.

If you plan to attend Sunday's performance, please call (928) 468-1381 and leave a message with your name and the number in your party.
