Oscar Peterson Intl Jazz Festival – Cecile McLorin Salvant
February 16 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST$55 - $100
As the world’s first (and only!) jazz festival bearing the name of Canada’s greatest jazz artist, the Oscar Peterson International Jazz Festival will honour and celebrate his legacy of excellence.
The opening night concert International All-Star Jazz at the Philharmonic features multiple GRAMMY Award winners Cécile McLorin Salvant, Jon Faddis, Jimmy Greene, Michael Dease, Benny Green, Christian McBride, and Kenny Washington.
“Cécile McLorin Salvant is a glorious gift to the world of music and has been recognized by critics and audiences alike, as one of the most important singers to come along in many years. Still in her twenties – she’s already a master and building on the legacy of the vocal giants that came before her. Cécile has an ability to get “inside” the lyric the same way a great actor inhabits a character. The ease with which she delivers a song can be very striking.”
-Renee Rosnes, Artistic Director
