Permesso: featuring Jennifer Thorpe & Friends

Permesso explores the human journey through all the twists and turns of love – romantic, sexual and, ultimately, love of the self. There are no rules about how or whom we love.

The show is inclusive of material for LGBTQ. Permesso is not a question, it is a statement. Music includes jazz standards, new Canadian originals and unexpected pop crossovers.

Jennifer “Red” Thorpe is an award-winning jazz vocalist who has performed in clubs, concerts and festivals throughout Ontario. Witty, lyrical and always at ease, she is a consummate entertainer whose sets include everything from Fats Waller to bebop, jazz standards to new Canadian ‘standards.’ A proud graduate of Western’s performance program, Jennifer continues to work in many languages, singing original jazz lyrics in Portuguese, French and Spanish.

Performances include jazz appearances with pianist Mark Eisenman, local legends John Noubarian and Charlie Rallo, as well as Orchestra London and local swing band The Jitterbugs. She has shared the stage with Canadian folk/blues legends Ken and Chris Whiteley, folk icon Jackie Washington, and, more recently, Canadian rock chick Emm Gryner. Recording credits include Mike Gorman’s debut album where she appears alongside Canadian folk legend Willie P. Bennett, and a jazz session with Reg Schwager and Mark Eisenman . As a first-time producer, Jennifer’s sold-out tribute concert at the Glenn Gould Studio for jazz guitarist Ed Bickert was recorded and broadcast by CBC Radio program Canada: LIVE! Still a force to be reckoned with, “Red” continues to work as a musician, producer and columnist. She makes her home in beautiful St. Marys, Ontario with her husband and three children.
