A Little Lunchtime Jam

Jazz String Quintet

Jazz String Quintet

On Tuesday at 1:00 PM WFMT presents live music from the University of Illinois at Chicago Recital Hall. Tuesday’s group features a string quintet—a jazz string quintet—actually it’s a string quartet (two violins, viola, and cello) with saxophone played by Jim Gailloreto.

Vocalist Cheryl Wilson will be sitting in with the group for Tuesday’s show. Wilson is a graduate of UIC, and has a solid career as a commercial singer, doing backups for the likes of Harry Connick, Jr., Aretha Franklin, and Josh Grobin. She’s voiced songs for Disney, and recorded America the Beautiful to be played each day at sunset at Mt. Rushmore. A little known fact about Cheryl Wilson: for fun she plays viola in a community orchestra in Park Ridge, Il.

Tune in for a live concert of the Jazz String Quintet with Cheryl Wilson on Tuesday at 1:00 PM on WFMT.

    I love the vocal sound of Cheryl Wilson! I had to stop what I was doing at work to pull up the website and find out what was going on. Thank you for enriching my day.
