S. Robert & Denise Zeilstra will present the Freedom Concert, in collaboration with Pasadena-based redwhite+bluezz, LA's premier Jazz Club, and Pasadena Entertainment. The Zeilstra's are sponsoring this concert as an opportunity to thank the men and women of the armed services, as well as those who serve in our police and fire forces for their commitment and dedication in protecting our country and local communities. The invite-only concert will feature some of the world's most renowned musical artists across all genres and will be the inaugural event in the new Grand Ballroom at the recently renovated Pasadena Convention Center. The concert will be free for any veteran or active service person, and guests will be treated to dinner served with a variety of wine and champagne.
As the official launch of the redwhite+bluezz CD The Experience, the first half of the concert will feature redwhite+bluezz artists showcasing their songs from the album. The second half of the program brings to the stage an all-star line-up of some of today's most talented artists of all musical genres, with musical accompaniment from the redwhite+bluezz orchestra.
