Grammy-nominated Roberta Gambarini, an Italian jazz singer who sings with a distinctly American jazz flavor, will be singing in Lake Charles as part of the McNeese State University Banners Cultural Series at 3 p.m. this Sunday, March 20, in the F.G. Bulber Auditorium on the McNeese campus. She will perform with her quartet. The concert's venue has been changed to F.G.

Tickets are included in a Banners Series membership. Individual tickets can be purchased online at the Banner's Website, at the Lake Charles Civic Center box office and at the door.
