A versatile performer for more than 20 years in Chicago, Kristy Parton sings with the 18-member Helios Jazz Orchestra in a special concert of jazz favorites. Kristy’s big band experiences began in college when she was honored with a Downbeat award and performed at the North Sea Jazz Festival and Montreux Jazz Festival. As the featured vocalist with the well-known Rob Parton Big Band for many years, her interpretations of jazz and popular songs have been heard by thousands. In the Windy City, she also sang with jazz combos, The Caroling Party (an award-winning a cappella group).
The Helios Jazz Orchestra (directed by Dr. David Manson) has been featured on the Clearwater Jazz Holiday, St. Petersburg Jazz Festival, and Ybor Jazz Festival. It is comprised of top area jazz musicians who love the sound of a roaring jazz big band!
