Free admission

Christine Guter Jazz vocalist Christine Guter will perform at The Painted Table on Friday, September 14 at 7:30 pm. Her Fresno appearance coincides with a two-day jazz vocal workshop hosted by the vocal jazz students at Fresno City College.

Ms. Guter is a fixture on the LA jazz scene. She has also worked with many legendary musicians including Rosemary Clooney, Joe Williams, Diane Schuur, Maynard Ferguson, Mercer Ellington, Lionel Hampton, Mel Torme, and Bobby McFerrin. As an A-list studio singer, she has recorded over 20 film soundtracks, including Happy Feet, X-Men 3 and the brand new Cirque du Soleil show, "Iris," with music composed by Danny Elfman.

Ms. Guter is the director of the Vocal Jazz program at CSU Long Beach's Bob Cole Conservatory of Music and directs the award-winning student vocal ensemble "Pacific Standard Time." She is also lead singer of the much celebrated Jazz quintet Vocalogy and performs regularly throughout the US and Europe as a solo vocalist with her trio. The intimate setting, fine dining, and of course the talents of Ms. Guter and company (Craig Von Berg, Roy Carlson, Brian Hamada, and Mike Dana) promise to recreate the ambience of an elegant and sophisticated jazz club in the heart of Fresno’s Tower District.
