Mindful jazz

Pamela Givens

Jazz singer Pamela Givens is to perform a benefit concert to raise money for a Buddhist 'Practice Centre for Mindful Living'. 

Pamela Givens will be singing her own songs and jazz standards on Friday 17 October at 7.30pm in the Unitarian Church on Emmanuel Road, Cambridge.

Pamela, whose original songs have placed highly in song contests in the US and UK, is a dynamic songstress who brings a freshness and vitality to jazz standards, and creates original songs which sound like classics. She will be accompanied by Peter Shepherd on piano, and Andrew Brown on bass, two accomplished musicians who have played internationally. Pamela will be heading off to the Cork Jazz Festival shortly after this concert, where last year she surprised and delighted audiences in a series of impromptu performances.

Pamela says "I am looking forward to sharing my music with the people of Cambridge, and also revisiting some jazz favourites."

Takings from the concert will go towards the Being Peace Practice Centre for Mindful Living. This will be a residential centre available for retreats for people from all over the UK made, possible by the Community of Interbeing, a  community of people who follow the teachings of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, the Vietnamese monk who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Tickets are priced at £7.00 or £5.00 for concessions. Light refreshments will be available during the interval. Doors open at 7.00pm.
