BREVARD COUNTY • SUNTREE, FLORIDA – Superstar entertainer, Jeff Shadley returns to Florida for the Great American Songbook at 7 p.m. on Saturday, February 13 at the Scott Center for the Performing Arts in north Melbourne, located at 5625 Holy Trinity Drive.

The Tulsa vocalist, trumpeter, and bandleader will join members of the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra for selections by George and Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer, Jimmy Van Heusen, Dean Martin, and Frank Sinatra.

The concert promises to swing, with Shadley leading the party on a journey through a century of America’s greatest music.

The concert title is derived from the aptly named Great American Songbook, a canon of the most important and influential American popular songs of the 20th Century.

Compiled principally from Broadway theatre, musical theatre, and Hollywood musical films from the 1920s through the 1950s, the Great American Songbook includes dozens of songs of enduring popularity.

Advance adult tickets for $30 are available through the orchestra website at SpaceCoastSymphony.org or at Marine Bank & Trust in Suntree. Tickets at the door are $35.

Online ticketing is encouraged, for optimum social distancing and capacity planning.

The symphony’s COVID-19 safety measures will be in place for the indoor concert, including temperature checks, limited and spaced seating, and mandatory mask-wearing for the duration of the event.

The audience is asked not to arrive more than 30 minutes prior to showtime. Great American Songbook is free for those aged 18 and under or with a student ID.

For more information, call toll free to 855-252-7276 or visit SpaceCoastSymphony.org.

“This is a fantastic musical recipe,” said Collins. “Take a superstar entertainer, add talented musicians from our great orchestra and blend in your favorite tunes. You get the 20th Century’s best songs served up with a heaping helping of swing!”

Space Coast Symphony Orchestra Artistic Director, Aaron T. Collins has put together a feast for jazz lovers.

Frank Sinatra is well represented in the concert repertoire, with songs like “Come Fly With Me,” “You Make Me Feel So Young,” “New York, New York” and others. Songbook fans will recognize, “Somewhere Beyond the Sea,” “My Funny Valentine,” “The Girl From Ipanema,” “All of Me” and many other favorites.
