April 18, 2014: Kathy Kosins — Ladies of Cool: A Love Letter to the Feminine in Jazz
Celebrating the artistry of 1950s female jazz icons Anita O’Day, June Christy, Julie London and Chris Connor, contemporary chanteuse Kathy Kosins brings her own personal interpretation and vocal style to Boston Court with her take on the “Ladies of Cool.” This marvelous concert explores the music and relationships that each of these extraordinary singers had with their composers and arrangers of the day. The style eventually became known as West Coast Jazz, defining the very essence of what we now know as “cool” jazz.

May 4, 2014: Phillip Glass: A Madrigal Opera
A rare opportunity to experience an early Phillip Glass opera that is senza parole (without words), and does not include any dramatic story line.

Presented as part of this year’s Los Angeles Philharmonic Minimalist Jukebox Festival, Boston Court is proud to offer their “premiere” of this seminal masterpiece. Conducted by Brent McMunn and directed by Jessica Kubzansky.
