UK's Angie Ortega Wins Contest

Angie Ortega, a University of Kentucky senior studying music performance, won the "Big Phat Jam" online competition and will be a featured vocalist on the next recording of Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band. Professor Miles Osland, director of jazz studies at UK, recognized Angie's talent and encouraged her to enter the contest. After graduation, she is going to be a musician and is planning to start her professional career playing music on a cruise ship.

Angie will be singing with The Miles Osland Little Big Band at Ecton Park on Tuesday, July 17. The free concert starts at 7:00. I am hoping to be able to attend.
