Cécile McLorin Salvant
- The Praise: The New York Times raves, “Ms. Salvant has it all… If anyone can extend the lineage of the Big Three – Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald – it is this 23-year-old virtuoso,” while legendary jazz trumpeter Wynton Marsalis has praised Cécile’s “range, insight, intelligence, depth and grace”
- The Prizes: First prize at the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition in 2010 (where she was the also the youngest winner), four wins at the 2014 Down Beat Critics Poll (including Jazz Album of the Year and Female Vocalist), and a Grammy nomination
- Where to Begin: Check out the critically-adored debut album, WomanChild, which showcases her pitch-perfect chops, multitude of vocal timbres, and unpredictable selections from the early days of jazz, including tunes from ’20s blues star Bessie Smith and singing trumpeteer Valaida Snow’s 1935 curio, “You Bring Out the Savage in Me”
Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts
Since opening its doors in 1955, Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts has attracted arts attenders from across the Northeast. The reason is clear: a short hop, skip, and a jump from the garage and you're immersed in the center's robust programming, which places special emphasis on top quality entertainment, as well as music, dance, and comedy from all corners of the globe. Yo-Yo Ma, Wynton Marsalis, and Jon Stewart have all commanded the attention of auditors tucked into more than 2,300 seats. Things get more intimate for the venue's Cabaret Series, which won Connecticut Magazine's Best Cabaret award. During these nights, the space takes on a cozy nightclub ambiance thanks to candlelit tables and a variety of acts, from acclaimed pianists to improv troupes.
