Clark sent a message to Chuck Surack Founder, President, and CEO, Sweetwater Sound Inc. that said:
REQUEST FOR DIRECT EMAIL INCLUSION OF YOU IN DISCUSSIONS SURROUNDING THE DEVELOPMENT OF FORT WAYNE JAZZ CABARET, A NONPROFIT INDIANA CORPORATION
Dear Chuck Surack,
I write as managing director of Fort Wayne Jazz Cabaret, now and Indiana nonprofit corporation heading toward partner organization membership in Arts United in 2016. Chris Rukowstiki is our musical director, and standout vocalists from surrounding cities and as far away as Paris--Guylenn Delassus is our lead vocalist with two French grammies ("Victoires de la Musique) as ten-year lead vocalist backED up by the Claude Bolling Big Band.
She, on salary here along with the musical director, is a distinguished jazz voice teacher in the Paris state conservatory best known for its jazz program, but continues perform, this past weekend in a concert hall on the Riviera. During longer vacation times in her country (Summer, two weeks Spring and Fall) she intends a second base at Fort Wayne Jazz Cabaret.
She plans coordination from Paris of international cultural exchange in jazz vocal performance from different newer rebirth nations of jazz--with grant funding from every nation that wants its standout performers to heard in America.
My simple question: may I have your direct email so that I can keep you in the loop going forward. I am in communication Sister Elise and Saint Francis, and in our collaboration have initiated discussion (including Jeff Rogers) about possible use of the former Shrine Auditorium and its new professional recording studio.
This would be when we need to go being the well-established series of intimate jazz cabaret shows at the LaSalle Bed Breakfast Inn for a concert hall performance, for a workshop, or for portofolio recording for a student wanting to sign up with Guylenn here for jazz voice lessons. She attracts students, including professionals, from as far away as Korea, for one-on-one jazz voice lessons in Paris.
For a sample of her work, do an internet search on "Guylenn at the Louvre". Here she sings solo in the '90's backed by the Bolling band to a thousand in the courtyard of the Louvre from a national network TV show. Earlier she performed with Dizzy Gillespie, and replaced a cancer-stricken Sarah Vaughan in concert.
