Sarah McKenzie San Francisco - Paris of the West 

Melbourne, Australia-born and Paris-based vocalist/pianist Sarah McKenzie returns to California following her U.S. debut at Monterey Jazz Festival for the World Premiere of her 13-song live concert of newly composed material commissioned by Jazz at Lesher Center, "San Francisco - Paris of the West." McKenzie brings to life the wondrous story of the Verdier family starting with Felix' and Emile's voyage during the Gold Rush in 1850 aboard the "Ville de Paris" ship trekking from France to San Francisco and their quest to open a store, the 'City of Paris,' celebrating French culture in downtown San Francisco, all the way to the post-prohibition 1930's when Paul Verdier and his friend and store manager Charles Gassion turned the "City of Paris" into the center of French culture in the Bay Area.

Location:
At the Lesher Center for the Arts located at 1601 Civic Drive in Walnut Creek. Concert takes place in the 800 seat Hofmann Theatre.
