In December, Second Saturdays Vocal Jazz Series is excited to present vocalist Sara
Jones. She’sjoined by Chris Grasso (piano) and Tommy Cecil (bass). The first-place winner of the Billie Holiday Vocal Competition and semi-finalist in the American Traditions Competition, jazz vocalist Sara Jones has toured 49 states and
performed in concert halls across the country. To get a taste of Sara’s style, check out this video: https://youtu.be/CZRzsn4bXLw
Jones has appeared as a soloist with the National Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, and Ravinia Festival Orchestra, under the batons of Emil de Cou and Erich Kunzel. An additional highlight includes a solo performance on the Esplanade with
Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops Orchestra. In the Baltimore/Washington area,
Jones was a featured vocalist with the Jazz Ambassadors and has graced the stages of
the Hippodrome Theater, Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, Strathmore Mansion, and the
Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. 
Jones, who began her musical career as a pianist, received her Bachelor of Music in
Piano Performance at St. Mary's College of Maryland and her Master of Music in Piano
Accompanying at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. After
graduation, she chose to pursue a professional vocal career with the Soldiers’ Chorus of
the U.S. Army Field Band, where she served for six years. Now a civilian, Jones
maintains an active performing schedule and has recently released her debut
CD, Daydream A Little on Petite Musique Records. A collection of beloved jazz
standards and bossa novas, it features Jones and major Brazilian Jazz Group, Trio Da
Paz. Jones’ schedule can be found on her website, sarajones.com.
