Gerri and Ginny and all that jazz

There's no cover charge to hear Gerri DiMaggio sing at the Isthmus Jazz Festival on the Wisconsin Union Terrace in June. Her itinerary also shows she'll be singing at other Madison locations in the weeks preceding the jazz festival.

But we've known about Gerri's successful career for a long time because she's a member of the Class of 1965.

Just today, however, I learned that there's another graduate of Madison Central High School who's also been singing and performing jazz in the Madison area for many years. Ginny O'Brien (Class of 1944) is the subject of Doug Moe's column today. You can read a bit more about Ginny, as well as check out her senior class photo, if you read my post about her on the Central history blog.
