The singing trio Sister Swing will bring their vintage jazz sound to Thornton Junior High next weekend, singing in the new year with the Chopped Liver Orchestra.

Valerie Marston will channel the sounds of the 1930’s and 40’s with her vocals, while Paula Chafey-Merril and Leigh Hannan back her up. The group has been singing for about two decades, accumulating some interesting experiences along the way. Some of the group’s notable performances include singing with the Nelson Riddle Band and opening up for the Glenn Miller Orchestra. 

Shirley Sisk, executive director of the Newark-based philanthropic organization called The League of Volunteers (LOV), described the group as “talented vocalists dedicated to fun and frivolity.”

LOV partnered with the Newark Arts Council to produce the concert, which will mark the opening of the 25th annual Sunday Afternoon Arts Series. It promises to be an afternoon of swinging ballads and boogie woogie beats. Organizers said there will be plenty of space to get up and dance.  

The concert starts at 2 p.m. on Sunday, January 12 in the Thornton Junior High Multi Purpose Auditorium, located at 4357 Thornton Avenue in Fremont, California.

Doors open at 1 p.m. Admission is free. Organizers suggest people donate funds to help produce the show. The suggested donation is $10 for adults, $7 for seniors and students. $3 for children less than 12.  

For more information call 510-793-5683 or visit LOV’s website at lov.org.
