Council Oak Montessori: Sarah Marie Young Concert

January 31, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Council Oak Montessori School hosts award-winning musician.

On Friday, January 31st, Blue Island Music and Council Oak Montessori School welcome back award-winning singer, songwriter and musician, Sarah Marie Young, for a pre-lunch performance. Our extended communities are invited to attend the concert, which will begin at 11 AM in the school gym.

Sarah Marie Young was a semi-finalist in the 2010 Thelonious Monk Competition and the winner of the 2011 Montreux Voice Competition judged by Quincy Jones, from which she recorded her first full length album “Too Many Februaries” at Balik Farm Studios in Switzerland and performed it at The Montreux Jazz Festival in 2012. After being signed by the Dutch label Snip Records in 2014, Sarah Marie Young released and toured Europe with her second album, “Little Candy Heart”. Sarah’s latest album, “Recess” was self-produced and released in April 2016. In 2017, she was featured with Postmodern Jukebox, and in 2018 appeared on Playing For Change’s “Skin Deep” video with Buddy Guy. Her all female acoustic group, The Oh Yeahs, is releasing their full-length album in January 2019.

The performance is free of charge. Attendees are welcome to stay for Council Oak’s Friday Community Lunch ($10 per adult and $8 per child, cash or check only) following the performance. Please enter at the school’s Ann Street doors.
