Pauletta Pearson Washington will be in concert Friday, September 12, 2014 at 7:30pm at Toronto’s Church of the Holy Trinity, Trinity Square at Bay/Dundas, behind the Eaton Centre. Pauletta studied piano at Julliard, and was introduced to the jazz world by Miles Davis and members of the Lionel Hampton Orchestra. Not long into her twenties, she began working with theater luminaries Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jerry Herman and Jules Styne. Pauletta was born in North Carolina but lived in Toronto during the early years of her acting career. Since then, she and husband Denzel Washington have called Los Angeles home for over 30 years.
Today Pauletta explores the universal meaning of “home” through spoken word and her world music ensemble: eight musicians playing instruments from India, the Middle East, South Asia and the Americas. The concert consists of reworkings of classic rock, soul and more. Tickets are now on sale at $25.00 each (plus a $3.00 service charge) from www.totix.ca or www.ticketpro.ca or by visiting the T.O. TIX Ticket booth at Yonge and Dundas. A portion of the ticket sales will benefit the Ontario Association of Food Banks.
