First Tuesday and every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday throughout the Spring, the Home Smith Bar at the Old Mill Toronto showcases some of the most important instrumentalists and leading vocalists on today’s jazz scene for your pleasure in the cozy intimacy of one of Toronto’s best-loved lounges.
After graduating from York University with an Honors BFA degree in Jazz performance, SHARON SMITH embarked on a whirlwind career that included musical theatre, nightclubs, radio and television commercials, and live television appearances. With the birth of her children, she embraced early childhood music and trained to become a teacher, a passion she pursues today as a Toronto District School Board children’s music teacher, parallel to her own busy singing career.
A versatile performer, Sharon has sung in religious choirs, jazz clubs and restaurants, and regularly performs in a dinner theatre show, and in 2016, she became a member of the Amadeus Choir of Toronto.
Perhaps best-known as one of the city’s leading big band singers, Smith has been featured with A Touch of Class, Music Machine, The Starlight Orchestra, The Encore Concert Jazz Band, The Saul Helman Band, The Shelley Miller Band, The Majestics, Replay, Big Smoke Big Band, Don Bowes Big Band, The George Lake Big Band, Danny’s 11, and The Bob Cary Orchestra.
She has worked with some of Toronto’s finest jazz musicians including Norman Amadio, Peter Appleyard, Mark Kelso, Lou Pomanti, Guido Basso, Moe Koffman, Jimmy Dale, and Ed Bickert, and appeared on stages from Koerner Hall, Roy Thomson Hall, the George Weston Recital Hall, Oakville Centre, Scarborough Civic Centre, and Markham Theatre to The Rex and 744.
This evening’s singing star SHARON SMITH features JORDAN KLAPMAN on piano and SHELLEY MILLER on bass, entertaining in the up-close-and-personal ambience of the Home Smith Bar.
