Classically trained, warm-voiced singer-songwriter Jaimielynn Amato headlines the next installment of the El Paso Community Foundation Jewel Box Series at the Philanthropy Theatre at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, March 10 in the Philanthropy Theatre on the second floor of the Plaza Theatre Performing Arts Centre.
Tickets are $16 at the Plaza Theatre box office, ticketmaster.com and 800-745-3000 (service charges apply to online and telephone sales).
Her concert, Jaimelynn Amato: The Songbird of El Paso, will be a musical blending of Borderland culture. The intimate songwriter-storyteller performance will celebrate women and equality while drawing heavily from her two albums of original songs, starry skies and fragile ties, and new album, 8 years. “I’ll share my writing process and what influenced the music and lyrics,” says Jaimielynn, who’ll be accompanied by percussionist Corina Villareal.
Jaimielyn has been singing since she was 3. She is a member of the UTEP Opera and Chorale, and has studied with Eike Gunnarson and Diana Esparza. She has been performing originals and songs from all over the world since 2010 and appears regularly at area venues such as Ardovino’s Desert Crossing and Anson 11.
The Jewel Box Series, now in its fifth season, was created by the El Paso Community Foundation to showcase local performing arts groups in the charming Philanthropy Theatre. The series presents diverse, unusual and inventive programs. The 2018-2019 season features seven shows by local performing arts groups on the second Sunday of each month, through May 2019.
The Jewel Box Series is produced in partnership with El Paso Live. The 191-seat Philanthropy Theatre is located above the Plaza Theatre box office on the second floor of the Plaza Theatre Performing Arts Centre annex.
