The evening will open with popular local singer Nikki George.  With a warm personality and an amazing voice, George enjoys the versatility of jazz.  She began her musical career in Chicago and has performed in New York, Florida, and Europe, among other cities.  Her work as aired on Chicago stations like WRRG and WNUA, and she also appeared on WGN and WYIN television.  The Chicago Tribune has said of Ms. George: "She is sensational, electrifying...and an obviously accomplished singer."

Critically acclaimed composer and pianist Lisa Hilton will next take the stage as headlining act on the piano.  Dubbed the "Lioness of Jazz," Hilton's fluid, expressive playing style is influenced by Miles Davis.  Her music is played on numerous radio stations in the U.S., Canada, and around the world.  She has also been featured on NPR's Morning Edition and XM Radio.  The Zone Music Reporter said last year of Ms. Hilton, "She is one of the major voices in the modern jazz community."
