  • Overview

    Inspired by Billie Holiday’s seminal 1958 recording “Lady In Satin,” “Symphony, Song, Swing!” embodies the lyricism and dynamic rhythms of
    Jazz’ Golden Age. The new, original arrangements, beautifully interweave Ballin’s singing with a jazz trio and the dramatic textures of a chamber ensemble from the Des Moines Community Orchestra. The repertoire includes beloved favorites from The Great American Songbook such as “Night And Day” and “All Of Me”, as well as classics by iconic composers George Gershwin and Irving Berlin. Ballin and her New York City trio (which includes husband/bassist Ari Roland who appeared with the Chris Byars Trio at Caspe Terrace in December 2021) will also be performing selections from the Great American Songbook.
