From press release
Jacqueline Schwab will perform her Rockford premiere concert to benefit Carpenter’s Place at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 12, at New Sullivan Theater (formerly New American Theater), 118 N. Main St.
Schwab is widely heard on the soundtracks to Ken Burns’ PBS series. She will perform a solo concert of historic American music, rousing dance tunes and reflective airs celebrating the life of Mark Twain.
Beautiful and uplifting, Schwab’s arrangements honor the community and improvisational spirit of vintage American music.

Schwab’s credits include performing Ken Burns’ Lewis and Clark Series for President Bill Clinton at the White House; performing at the Savannah Music Festival; accompanying Scottish singer Jean Redpath on the Late Show with David Letterman; and playing for A Prairie Home Companion.
Immediately following the performance, enjoy a dessert and Starbucks coffee at a reception in honor of Schwab.
Admission is $30 per ticket. All concert proceeds benefit the programs at Carpenter’s Place.
