Carlsen Center Presents Eboni Fondren
The 2019 - 2020 season of the Carlsen Center Presents Series continues with Winterlude - Eboni Fondren on Sunday, January 19, 7 p.m. in Polsky Theatre. High res photos with IDs can be found here.
Eboni Fondren is a multitalented vocalist known for her engaging interpretations of jazz standards and impressive musical theater roles. After seeing her sing at the American Jazz Museum's Blue Room, a representative from the Kansas City Repertory Theatre invited Eboni to audition for Little Shop of Horrors. Since then, she can be found not only in the area's jazz clubs, but on the stages of the city's musical theater productions. Eboni credits her mastery of jazz performance to her early work with Kansas City Hammond B-3 organ player Everette DeVan. Now she leads groups of KC's finest jazz instrumentalists under her own name. Eboni is backed by piano (Joe Cartwright), bass (Seth Lee) and drums (John Kizilarmut), singing favorites from the American Songbook and familiar jazz standards.
