More Info

Improvisation is not just a technique for Grammy nominated artist Cyrille Aimée, it's a way of life. The acclaimed vocalist ventured from singing on street corners in Europe to dazzling audiences at the world's most prestigious jazz festivals; from sneaking out to sing in gypsy encampments in her native France to acting on Broadway; from braving the notoriously tough audiences at New York's Apollo Theatre to being called a "rising star in the galaxy of jazz singers" by The New York Times. Among countless accolades, Aimée won the Montreux Jazz Festival Vocal Competition and the Sarah Vaughn International Jazz Vocal Competition. As an actress, Aimée co-starred with Bernadette Peters in a Stephen Sondheim tribute at New York's City Center which inspired her to dig deeper into Sondheim's repertoire, resulting in her fourth and most recent album, Move On: A Sondheim Adventure. She's shared her story via master classes, a TEDx talk, and a few addresses at the Conference on World Affairs. All performances will be at half the normal audience capacity, creating an even more intimate listening experience. Proof of covid vaccination or negative PCR test is required. Masks are required. With the limited seating, it is advised that you get your tickets early!
