"Nancy Hildegarde started performing at the age of eight in her father’s church. Nancyattended the prestigious Julliard Conservatory of Music in New York, studying with the principal trumpet player of the New York Philharmonic. In those days orchestras were closed to women, so Nancy entered the jazz world. After touring for several years with big bands including the world famous International Sweethearts of Rhythm she returned to New York City and formed several men’s combos. Nancy appeared for a season on WATV. For the past twenty years she has made her home in Rockport, Ma and the West Indies and performed regular shows on Caribbean radio. Nancy is very happy to have found a new home at Chianti’s Tuscan Restaurant and Jazz Lounge in Beverly, Massachusetts. This is a show you don’t want to miss."
