LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — Jude Darrin is once again a featured vocalist in the LCSA Christmas Concert.

The concert premieres at 2 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 24, on the Soper Reese Theatre YouTube Channel. More information is available here.

The Nashville native spent her early years in an orphanage in nearby Spring Hill, where she entertained guests singing with her three older sisters. She got her first taste of show-business performing on a Nashville radio station WSM at age 10.

Darrin holds a PhD in humanities and was a lecturer for the California State University system. Helping to raise awareness and understanding through her university lecture series was very rewarding work; however, her main passion is singing.

Darrin is a past member of the San Jose Civic Light Opera/American Musical Theatre and was named best supporting actress for her role as “Cleo” in the musical, “The Most Happy Fella.”During this same time, she served up the standards as the lead singer for the Bay Area's Lockheed Big Band.

Darrin fronted her own band for over three decades. With this band she entertained in high-end venues ranging from the Broken Spoke in Austin, Texas, the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, to Los Angeles' Palomino Club. For nine years, she was the featured vocalist on a weekly CBS-affiliate country music television show. She has also done vocal work for major studios in Nashville, Austin, and Los Angeles.

Darrin has performed around the world at events from outdoor festivals to some of the finest concert halls, and aboard cruise ships to such places as Alaska, Mexico, and Hawaii.

She has also sung the national anthem for numerous professional ball clubs including the SF Giants, Atlanta Braves, Houston Astros, Sacramento's Kings, Knights and Monarchs, the Los Angeles Clippers and Sparks, and the Seattle Mariners.

Since relocating from Paradise to Lakeport seven years ago, Darrin and her family — grandson Slade and his mother, Camm — are enjoying donating their time as a musical trio performing a wide variety of music for the farmers’ markets in Lakeport, Finley and Middletown.
