The Desert Foothills Theater invites music lovers to spend an evening with Jazz Vocalist Shannon Wallace at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 23.

A resident of Cave Creek, Ms. Wallace’s professional career spans 25 years and has taken her from small trios to fronting 20-piece big band orchestras, performing around Arizona, nationally, and in Europe, according to a press release.

While working on recording her debut album, Ms. Wallace delights in sharing her talents with her local community.

Ms. Wallace will perform in the Foothills Community Foundation’s Holland Community Center, 34250 N. 60th St. building B, Scottsdale. Light refreshments will be served along with a cash bar.

Tickets for the performance are $29.50 and may be purchased at dftheater.org.

In addition, sign-ups are now open for musical revue camps to be held in July.

“Our musical revue camps offer students the chance to shine and improve their vocal singing techniques by practicing songs from their favorite musicals,” Tia Wooley, managing director of the Desert Foothills Theater, said in a prepared statement.

“Campers will work with a music director and choreographer to create moving choral pieces as well as solos. There will be a performance on Friday at 3 p.m. at the end of each week for the musical review camps.”

July camps include:

  • Camp 1: Broadway Disney songs, ages 8–14, July 8-12
  • Camp 2: Grease in Concert, ages 8–14, July 15-19
  • Camp 3: Classic Broadway Songs, adults or youth ages 15+, July 22-26

Camps are held at the Foothills Community Foundation’s Holland Community Center from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Cost is $235 per week and registration can be made at dftheater.org.
