Jeudi Jazzy - Sonya Veronica


Once a month on a Thursday, "The Kitchen" basement room of Eildon Mansion opens its doors for our popular Jeudi Jazzy concerts. With its rustic charm and intimate atmosphere, "The Kitchen" is the ideal venue, where the jazzy notes take over. Not to be missed!!


Sonya Veronica’s first love is singing, second is jazz and third is French language.

 “Singing has always been part of my life. Jazz to me feels natural, it’s never monotone, at times serious, other time whimsical and passionate the next. That’s also how I fell in love with the French language. "Je le trouve très mélodique, comme les chansons que j'ai déjà entendues quelque temps, quelque part."

At Jeudi Jazzy, all is to be intertwined. Sonya will be singing a mélange of jazz and chanson française, from Billie Holiday’s You Go to My Head to Léo Ferré’s Avec Le Temps. She will be joined by fabulous and sympathetic musicians, Mark Fitzgibbon (piano), who is also the music arranger, Howard Cairns (double bass) and Raj Jayaweera (drums).
