The Grammy winning singer’s body of work has spanned many genres, but particularly fans of jazz, soul and swing will love this powerful pops performance. In concert with conductor Thomas Wilkins and the Omaha Symphony, Austin brings the music of Ella Fitzgerald to life. She’ll perform “Our Love is Here to Stay,” “The Man I Love” and other tracks by The First Lady of Song, many of which Austin did on 2002’s Grammy nominated For Ella.
