An Interview with Angela Hagenbach
Vocalist performed with sextet at Auditorium for the Enrichment of Life
By Chris Cooke
Omaha, Nebraska – The Jazz Arts Midwest series continues on Friday night with vocalist/bandleader Angela Hagenbach.
No stranger to audiences in the Midwest, Hagenbach has performed at festivals and concerts on many occasions, exciting audiences with her Latin-tinged jazz and energetic stage presence.
Born to musical parents in Kansas City, Hagenbach initially played trombone before discovering her abilities as a jazz vocalist in the 1980s. Hagenbach's multi-octave range leaves the listener breathless at times, reminding one of the rich artisty of the late Sarah Vaughan.
Hagenbach has been active on the jazz scene for nearly 20 years, performing regionally as well as internationally. Hagenbach has also recorded a series of well-received records on her own label, Amazon records. A diverse, compelling performer, she presents fresh, enthusiastic takes on jazz standards as well as debuting originals.
Hagenbach will bring her sextet to the Jazz Arts Midwest series Friday evening. Showtime is 7pm at the Auditorium for the Enrichment of Life in Council Bluffs.
The auditorium is a 5 minute drive from the South Expressway Street exit off I-80/I-29. Exit Northbound on South Expressway Street, turn West onto 23rd Avenue, and then North onto South 10th Street.
The Auditorium for the Enrichment of Life is located at Longfellow Elementary School at 2011 S 10th St in Council Bluffs.
Tickets are available at the door.
Jazz in the Afternoon host Chris Cooke will present music and conversation with Angela Hagenbach on Jazz in the Afternoon Thursday.
