Brandon Music



The Ann Hutchins Band


This concert has been canceled.

Saturday, October 17th at 7:30pm

The Ann Hutchins Band explores popular songs from the 1930s forward; both well-known and less familiar works by musicians such as Harold Arlen, Kurt Weill and Cole Porter. This will be their second performance at Brandon Music and, if anything like their first, will be an event not to be missed. The group will mix in a little rhythm & blues, some straight-up jazz, and a few originals, but as Ann says, “As always, the focus will be on the three elements you need to make a great song: a story, a tune, and a groove.”

Ann, lead vocals, is joined by Kenny Cifone, congas and trumpet; Glendon Ingalls, bass and trumpet; Rob Zollman, percussion; Steven MacLauchlan, saxophone and flute; and Chuck Miller, piano.

A native Vermonter and lifelong musician, Ann Hutchins is a classically trained soprano who happily fell off the page to sing jazz and other contemporary styles of music. She has studied at the Tanglewood Institute and Crane School of Music. Ann has been singing and teaching throughout the state of Vermont for 20 years. With her uniquely resonant voice and delicious sense of phrasing, she makes unfamiliar songs accessible and reincarnates material that you have known for years. She has performed throughout central Vermont and the Northeast Kingdom.

Kenny Cifone is currently teaching middle school music at Otter Valley Union High School. He is a graduate of Manhattan School of Music and Queens College. Kenny plays in many local bands including the Keating Five, Feral Godmother, Enerjazz and the Brandon Town Band.

Bass player Glendon Ingalls is a multi-instrumentalist who performs regularly on string bass, electric bass, valve trombone, sousaphone and trumpet. He is a trumpet and string bass instructor at Middlebury College. Glendon has recorded with a wide variety of groups including the Vermont Jazz Ensemble and Onion River Jazz Band.

Percussionist Rob Zollman has been a performer and teacher for over 35 years. He attended Berklee College of Music and the University of the Arts. He has appeared in numerous bands in Philadelphia, New York and Vermont and is currently owner/director of Hands-On Music, a community music making center, music school and store located in Brandon.

Steven MacLauchlan, on alto and tenor saxophone and flute, has been performing throughout the northeast since the mid 70s. As a Vermont Jazz Ensemble Alumnus, he worked as a sectional player and featured soloist. Steven has performed with trombonist/Grammy Award nominee Dennis Wilson, tenor saxophonist Jerry Jerome and The Spinners, among others.

Chuck Miller has played piano professionally in Vermont for 20 years with such great artists as Sandra Wright, Rick Redington and Jenny Johnson. Miller studied music composition at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and is currently teaching music at the Mary Hogan School in Middlebury.
