Jan Jungden

Life after Covid is exciting! People gathering for concerts, meeting up in the town square, learning new things as a group, falling in love, the possibilities are endless. As we return to normal with a fresh appreciation for spending time together, my performance of popular jazz tunes reflects these positive changes coming our way.

IMAGINE the wonder of life after COVID19! I will sing and play my portable keyboard for 20 minutes to a half hour, choosing songs that reflect our hope for the future. “I Can See Clearly Now”, “Blue Skies”, “Tuxedo Junction”, “It Could Happen to You”, “When You’re Smiling “Take a Trip” (an original), “Summertime”, “It Don’t Mean A Thing If It Ain’t Got that Swing” speak of meeting and greeting friends in the community, dancing, being able to travel freely, falling in love and experiencing the joy of life together.
