Let wistful melodies and enlivening tunes penetrate your heart this Valentine’s Day! “The Best of Broadway: Jazz and Other Classics” will be performed by the Bernadette Garza Duo on Saturday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m., at St. Joseph Center. All are welcome to this Valentine’s Day tribute sponsored by the School Sisters of St. Francis. It offers songs of faith, hope and love.

Mezzo-soprano Bernadette Garza and pianist Kimberly Mandelkow will revive spirits dampened by the winter blahs. You’ll hear classic tunes like “On the Street Where You Live” from My Fair Lady, George Gershwin’s “Someone to Watch Over Me,” Nat King Cole’s “L-O-V-E” and many more.

Ms. Garza performs throughout the Chicago area as the lead vocalist for the variety bands, 4th Beat and Déjà Vu. She has been a featured artist for Uptown Underground’s live jazz series and a regular on other series, as well. In addition to her jazz career, she has enjoyed portraying both lead and other significant characters in such operas as Carmen, Madame Butterfly, and Ragtime.

Kimberly Mandelkow, longtime friend, will join Bernadette on the piano. Kimberly, too, is a woman of many talents. She  is a former Benedictine sister and now serves as the Archdiocese of Milwaukee’s Director for the Office for Worship.
