On November 10, local jazz crooner Ken Slavin will present a concert to benefit the San Antonio AIDS Foundation (SAAF) at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts’ Carlos Alvarez Theater.
Ken Slavin: Shaken, Not Stirred is an expanded version of the singer’s recent New York City showcase at the Metropolitan Room featuring selections by Great American Songbook legends Cole Porter, Johnny Mercer and Burton Lane among others. Slavin will be accompanied by a jazz quartet under the direction of pianist and arranger Barry Brake.
Earlier this year, Slavin, who is also vice president of communications at SAAF spoke with Out in SA about his work and charitable efforts. “I happen to believe that giving back to the community is both an honor and a responsibility,” he said at the time.
