    October 5, 2019, 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM @ Modernism Museum Mount Dora

    Experience the musical chemistry between Judy Platt and her trio as they perform many of the classic jazz and blues standards we all love. Judy Platt was born in Florida and grew up listening to the great American songbook and southern gospel. She says, "My parents turned on the radio every morning and I heard it all day. I started singing in the choir as soon as they'd let me and sang my first solo at age 6." She started performing professionally at age 18 and never stopped. For thirteen years, Judy worked for Walt Disney World in Orlando, singing, acting, dancing and traveling the world. In 1995 she moved to California. For 5 years she was a guest vocalist at the Pori Jazz Festival in Pori, Finland where she had the honor of performing with some of the greats -- James Moody, Mercer Ellington, Marion Petrescu, Onder Focan, to name a few. She moved back to Florida in 2018 and performs regularly across Florida with the wonderful Chuck Archard and Ed Krout, among others.
