A Night of Jazz with Dianne Reeves You Won’t Soon Forget
See Grammy–Winning Performer Dianne Reeves Live For One Night Only!
If jazz is your thing, Copley Symphony Hall is where you’re going to want to be on Friday, February 19th! Dianne Reeves, perhaps one of the greatest living jazz vocalists, is coming to the Copley Symphony Hall to put on a one–night–only show of legendary jazz talent.
For those of you in the know, you’ll understand how big a deal Dianne Reeves is. Born to musicians in Detroit, from an early age Reeves had an affinity for music. As early as age 11, she was noted for her singing talents, and at age 16, she led her high school band to first place at a music festival. Just a year later she was moving to California to study music and take a more active role in pursuing her career. The rest is simply history. Highlights of her career include being the closing singer at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, touring the world with Harry Belafonte, receiving an honorary doctorate from The Juilliard School, and, most notably, winning Grammies in 2002 for her album The Calling: Celebrating Sarah Vaughan, in 2004 for A Little Moonlight and again in 2006 with her performance on the soundtrack of Good Night and Good Luck. This makes her the only vocalist to have ever won three Grammies for three consecutive albums.
In addition to hearing the lovely Ms. Reeves perform, your ticket gets you performances by the New Latin Jazz Quartet as well as trumpeter Gilbert Castellanos. He is a wonderful performer in his own right, having received acclaim for his trumpet work that harkens to the music of the 1950’s and 60’s. He is know for his stint as a supporting member of the band for the TV show American Idol, as well as his unforgettable trumpet rendition of the Star–Spangled Banner during his time with the San Diego Symphony. This, as well as his advocacy for the teaching of jazz to children as part of their cultural heritage, led to him being honored during the 2012 San Diego Music Awards in their “New Artist of the Year” category.
This is really going to be an unforgettable night of great jazz music put on by some of the best performers in the genre right now. If that sounds like something that you would be interested in, act now. The exceptional night is drawing closer and tickets are going fast.
