From jazz inspired by the Rat Pack and Ella Fitzgerald to gypsy, flamenco, tango and western swing, Foothills Music and Art Series is giving audiences a talented mix of musicians this month.

The next free concert will feature jazz vocalist Heather O’Day. She’ll perform Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the Foothills Mall, 7401 N. La Cholla Blvd.

O’Day hails from Tucson and has brought her jazz quintet to venues throughout Southern Arizona since 2008. With decades of experience onstage, the ensemble members all have impressive careers in their own right.

The group takes its cue from classic jazz stars like Billie Holiday, Dave Brubeck, Vince Guaraldi, Thelonious Monk and more. They feature a set list of the most beloved standards for vocals, piano, drums and bass, with a few unique surprises.

Heather’s four-octave vocal range adds flair and flavor to their warm sound.

The concert is presented by Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance.

The Foothills Mall Music and Art Series also features magic shows, strolling musicians, comedy acts, unique games and crafts for kids on Friday evenings and throughout the day on Saturday.

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
