We'll be welcoming back the INCREDIBLE Grace Kelly for a special, intimate performance.
“Grace Kelly has an electric charisma on-stage that instantly ignites the room,” says, band leader Jon Batiste. Saxophonist, singer, and composer Grace Kelly plays with the heart and passion of an old soul yet with the genre-bending zest and energy of a 25 year old. Having been a regular on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s band, Jon Batiste and Stay Human, Grace Kelly’s 10th CD Trying To Figure It Out, was voted #2 Jazz Album of The Year in 2016 Downbeat Magazine Readers Poll.
She wrote her first song at 7 years old, recorded her first CD at 12, orchestrated and performed her original composition with the Boston Pops Orchestra at 14, and performed at President Obama’s Inauguration at 16. As a bandleader Grace has performed over 800 concerts in over 30 countries in notable venues as the Hollywood Bowl, Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Symphony Hall and festivals such as Montreal, Newport, and Montreux.
