Mission Statement

The Seattle Women’s Jazz Orchestra, co-founded by Barbara Hubers-Drake and Ellen Finn, was formed to nurture the musical, educational and artistic growth of individual musicians, to encourage women and girls to become involved in jazz performance/composition as a career or avocation, and to foster community interest in and appreciation of jazz as an art form.

History

Since the first rehearsal in January of 2000, the band has performed at clubs, jazz festivals, and concert halls on two continents and performed with many distinguished artists including Hazel Leach, Jill Townsend, Ingrid Jensen, Grace Kelly, Mimi Fox, Christine Jensen, Sherrie Maricle, Sheryl Bailey, Greta Matassa, and Gail Pettis.

The band has performed at the Earshot Jazz Festival, Seattle Jazz Vespers, the Triple Door Mainstage, Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley, Seattle’s Bumbershoot Festival, Festival Jazz en Lima (Peru) and many others.

Lisa Fischer with Taylor Eigsti ~The Badass & The Beautiful~

Thu, Jun 10 - Sun, Jun 13

It was at the Stanford Jazz Festival in 2017 that Lisa Fischer (Rolling Stones, 20 Feet from Stardom) and pianist Taylor Eigsti first played as a duo — and the world stood still. Every note of those first songs still resonates with Lisa and Taylor, so much so that they’ve crafted an entire evening of music for you. Lisa will astonish you with her vocal mastery and stage magic, and together with Taylor she’ll reach directly into your soul in this special performance.
