Edmonds Center for the Arts’ 2017-18 Film Cabaret Series concludes with Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) on Thursday, April 26 at 8 pm. Prior to the film screening at 6:30 p.m., patrons are invited to a backstage happy hour with live music. The featured cabaret artist is Jake Bergevin Quartet.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s (directed by Blake Edwards) follows a young New Yorker, played by Audrey Hepburn, who becomes interested in a young man who has moved into her apartment building. The film won Academy Awards for Best Original Score and Best Original Song for “Moon River,” and was nominated for Best Actress for Audrey Hepburn, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Art Direction.
Jake Bergevin has been an active player in the Seattle Jazz scene since he won his first Downbeat Award in high school. He has attracted attention as a singer and trumpeter as a guest artist with the Everett Symphony, Spokane Jazz Orchestra and leader of his eight-piece mini-big-band, the Javatown Swing Orchestra. In addition to performing, Bergevin is a successful band teacher, helping Edmonds-Woodway High School become a nationally-recognized organization with its four-time participation in the Essentially Ellington Festival in New York. He was recently recognized by the GRAMMY Music Educator Awards as a quarter-finalist for band teacher of the year in the U.S.
