Jazz Night with Grace Kelly
June 22, 2020 - Award-winning singer-saxophonist-songwriter-composer Grace Kelly has built an incredible career in jazz, which includes the release of 13 acclaimed albums before entering her mid-twenties. In this Young Professionals’ Night webcast, Grace unpacks her stunning career in a chat with writer Will Friedwald. Join us as we dive into Grace’s musical journey -- from her first album release at the tender age of 12, to her performance at President Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration, as well as winning the John Lennon Songwriting Contest $20,000 Song of the Year Award for her song "Feels like Home", and more. Furthermore, learn how she is adapting as an artist in the time of COVID-19.
Plus, we have a special treat: socially-distanced performances by Grace Kelly from her very own living room -- including a special rendition of Arirang!
The New York Times on Grace Kelly: “…broad tone and tenacious flow on the alto saxophone, clearly in possession of virtuoso talents… impressive singing voice, flitting among a range of styles.”
