A.R.T. in Three Chairs present Global Rhythms!
“Seems to me, it ain’t the world that’s so bad but what we’re doin’ to it …Love baby, love. That’s the secret.”
- Louis Armstrong
On April 30, the Women of A.R.T. in Three Chairs join the global celebration of International Jazz Day with Global Rhythms. Showcasing music from the Jazz Ambassadors, a government-funded international touring program that brought greats like Louis Armstrong, Dizzie Gillespie, Duke Ellington, and Benny Goodman, listeners will be treated to well-loved favorites like “After You’ve Gone, and “What a Wonderful World.” Explore the way jazz inspired the world with timeless tunes like “Malaika” sung by Miriam Makeba and “Besame Mucho” written by Consuelo Velazquez.
In this performance, music and storytelling are woven together with each vocalist sharing her perspectives and life experiences (love, comedy, mystery, and heart break). Three Chairs will take the audience on an unforgettable journey.
Developed over coffee and conversation, Three Chairs features Audrey Shakir, Renée Georges and Theresa Sise. Their colorful life stories reflect their diverse backgrounds. So, pull up a chair and get ready for a great evening on #jazzday!

“Audrey Shakir is one of the greatest bebop singers in the world today, a talent with a thrilling voice, sure to send elation through the audience.”
–Wynton Marsalis, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra
"Whether she is performing as a soloist, a duo, or in an 18-piece big band setting, Renée Georges' approach and delivery of the song captures your ear.”
–Ellen Carter, “Morning Brew,” WPFW 89.3 FM, Washington, D.C.
“Theresa Sise, who has been traveling up from Annapolis, takes the reigns for “Take the A Train” with a lush voice that sounds bred for jazz, full one moment, fading out at just the right time.”
–Dickson Mercer, News Post, Frederick MD
