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.

Kat Edmonson

Tue, Feb 25 - Wed, Feb 26

On her upcoming 2020 recording "Dreamers Do" jazz vocalist Kat Edmondson explores the shared human struggle around daring to dream and it illuminates a range of emotional and psychological consequences that can happen along the way. A question gets raised in Kat’s vulnerable original, “Too Late to Dream”: “Are the messages we receive as children about following our dreams relevant through adult life?” The album is a mix of Edmonson’s original songs and re-imagined Disney songs from the mid-twentieth century and takes place over the course of one, sleepless night.

Regina Belle

Thu, Feb 27 - Sun, Mar 1

Four-time GRAMMY®-winning R&B/Pop songstress Regina Belle is a different story. Even as the New Jersey native rode high in the urban charts throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s with such urban classics as “Baby Come to Me,” “Make It Like It Was” and “What Goes Around,” faith, churchgoing, and gospel music remained at the very core of her life in the spotlight.
