Keeping jazz alive and well at the Chief Theater

The Evening of Jazz program, “My Favorite Things,” will take the stage at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Chief Theater and feature a selection of "oldies but goodies."

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Longtime Steamboat musician Marguerite Juenemann will bring a few of her "favorite things" to the Chief Theater this weekend.

The Evening of Jazz program, "My Favorite Things," will take the stage at 7 p.m. Saturday featuring a selection of “oldies but goodies.”

Studying and performing on countless stages to pass on the history and culture of jazz, Juenemann grew up on Denver's music scene with the three bandmates who will join her on stage. Those include musicians Eric Gunnison on piano, Paul Romaine on drums and Bill McCrossen on bass.

Spanning the musical spectrum from samba, funk, swing and be-bop, the performance will also encompass timeless jazz legends like Joni Mitchell, Mark Murphy, Chick Correa and Betty Carter to name a few.

"Beautiful song choices need to be heard time and time again," said Jueneman, who has been playing in Steamboat since the 1970s in a group called The Street Corner Choir and then Rare Silk. "I wanted to call this 'My Favorite Things' because the music challenges the vocal instrument in ways I love to navigate."
