|Jacinta on Performing|
It is always a thrill when I am performing to sit down at the piano and scan the crowd and realize we are playing to a full house! With the introduction of our new show 'Jazz Univers' in the spectacular ballroom of the Chateau Frontenac for the Quebec City Jazz Festival just a few weeks ago, that realization was like some sort of elixar. I felt a rush of adrenalin but a calming of any nerves I may have been feeling, considering this was the very first time performing this show. My drummer Claude winked at me and smiled...he felt it to. One more deep breath and that was it. We were into it. And very soon, so was our audience.
It felt magical performing "Jazz Univers" in Quebec City. With a variety of different instruments producing wonderful sounds of places far away and a unity with the persons playing them, no doubt about it, we were in sync with each other and with our audience...and that's what performing is about...connecting with the people there to see you.
Having introduced this new musical jazz fusion performance at the recent Quebec City Jazz Festival, Jacinta and her accompanying musicians are excited to perform 'Jazz Univers' to Montreal and Toronto. Booking arrangements may be customized to include Jacinta and Musicians as duo, trio, quartet or quintet. This performance is well suited to a large or a small venue. See the 'Jazz Univers' page for more information regarding the show, the musicians and their instruments.
Jacinta is now accepting bookings for 2012 'Jazz Univers'or for regular performances. Inquire now from out contact page.

SEE YOU THERE!
I was deeply touched to be able to perform my song with my students that I composed for the five-year commemoration ceremony held at the Dawson College Peace Garden on September 13 and on September 29, 2011, to perform with my students for the Dawson College/ACCC Conference on Youth & Violence, The Role of Education Conference, (Inspiring Solutions).
It has been an exhilarating process working with my students at Dawson College towards a fundraising Student Vocal Concert on November 22, 2011, 7:30 pm at the Dawson Theatre, 2000 Atwater St. Montreal.
All proceeds will be donated to helping children learn music at the Orphanage in Bastora, Goa, India run by the Konkan Development Society.
