Notes of Beverly Ritz:

Born in Washington D.C, she remembers that her father listened to classical radio while her mother enjoyed the music of Henry Mancini and Andre Previn. Beverly started picking out ideas on the piano from the age of three and was writing songs before she learned to read music. She began classical piano lessons when she was eight, also playing cello in her high school orchestra and teaching herself guitar. She studied veterinary medicine at Michigan State but was drawn back to music. “When I was doing an independent study research project at a drug rehabilitation center, there was a grand piano and I started playing it every day. My aunt visited me, heard me play, and asked why I was not working towards becoming a musician.” Although she earned a degree in psychology, she soon went back to school, majoring in music at Santa Monica College.

She is based in Northern California and is very common in scenarios of important sites in Newport, Oregon, where she fully enjoy direct contact with their fans. One of them is Cafe Mundo in the charming Nye Beach.

Before "Blues for Django" editor: "Buddy and Me", "Lacey Mae", "By Rowdy Creek", "Tango, Where Did the Time Go?", "At The Jetty" (book and cassette), "A Season of Faith", "A Season of Hope", "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning", "Songs for Wildlife", "Walk Away from the Blues" and "Someday". 

These CDs contain hits that constantly sound in radios and musical environments, plus they are dedicated to nature and animals. Of the latter is a staunch advocate.

The next presentation of the Miss Ritz will be in the historical and agreeable Patrick Creek Lodge on Sunday May 8 Mother 's Day. 

Patrick Creek Lodge, provides care to visitors since 1926, is located in the Six Rivers National Forest in Northern California.
