JAZZ | Jane Monheit 

When Jane Monheit joins The Penfield District Jazz choir to sing "A-Tisket, A-Tasket" at one of the 48th Annual Penfield Jazz Fund Raiser Concerts, she'll be in familiar territory. Her latest album, "The Songbook Sessions: Ella Fitzgerald," explores the work of the singer known for that song. Since taking second place in the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute's vocal competition in 1998, Monheit has been one of the top jazz vocalists on the scene. Friday and Saturday nights she'll be joining a variety of student ensembles from Penfield schools including the more-than-100-musician studio orchestra.

Jane Monheit sings Friday, February 2, and Saturday, February 3, at the Penfield High School Auditorium, 25 High School Drive. 7:30 p.m. $15 adults; $10 students. Tickets available at Music & Arts, the Bop Shop, the Penfield Branch of Canandaigua National Bank, and Penfield High. 249-6749.
