Once you have listened to acclaimed vocalist, composer and arranger Alicia Olatuja, you won’t forget her. Praised in The New York Times as “a singer with a strong and luscious tone,” Alicia has shared the stage with Chaka Khan, Christian McBride, Billy Childs, and others, astounding audiences with her exquisite vocals and artistic versatility.
Her program: “Intuition,” celebrates the works of female icons including songs of Brenda Russell, Sade, Tracy Chapman, Kate Bush, Angela Bofill and Linda Creed and feature classics such as "Give Me One Reason" and "This Woman's Work."
Chick Corea is a jazz icon and living legend, playing with the genre-shattering bands of Miles Davis and Stan Getz in the late ’60s and early ’70s. From straight-ahead to free-form, bebop to jazz-rock fusion, Chick has touched an astonishing number of musical bases.
The keyboardist, composer, and bandleader is an NEA Jazz Master, as well as the fourth-most nominated artist in Grammy Awards history with 22 wins.
