Mosaic Music Series Stacey Kent
20 Sep 2018, 7:30 PM - 11:59 PM
“Stacey’s singing never lets us forget these songs are about people. Her protagonists come to life so fully in her voice, you sometimes have to remind yourself the CD has no visuals. Here’s a great jazz diva of our age.”
– Kazuo Ishiguro, nobel laureate
“Her voice can act as a ray of sunshine or a consoling hand, but above all serves as a mirror for the heart.” – All About Jazz
“She has charm to burn, a smile that could give you hope in February and sings like nobody’s business.” – The Wall Street Journal
