Four-time Grammy Award-winning vocalist Dianne Reeves joins the Sydney Symphony for an evening of smooth and swinging jazz. In the tradition of Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O’Day and Billie Holiday, Dianne Reeves is a virtuoso performer and storyteller. She performs standards by Strayhorn, Sondheim, Gershwin, Weill and others in opulent orchestral arrangements. Dianne Reeves pays tribute to the great Sarah Vaughan, a vocalist who inspired Reeves to seriously pursue singing. ‘Sarah opened the door’, says Reeves.
This concert is a thrilling meeting of Reeve’s powerful voice and imagination and Vaughan’s spirit and inspiration.
