    Legendary vocalist Dianne Reeves will join the Reading Symphony Orchestra for the 23rd annual Berks Jazz Fest's opening night show.
    This special concert is part of the RSO's 100th anniversary celebration, and promises to kick off the festival with style and grace.
    Known for her live performances as much as her albums, Reeves is the pre-eminent jazz vocalist in the world today.
    Reeves is a four-time Grammy winner -- the only singer to win the vocal category for three consecutive recordings in any singing category. Her versatility in song interpretation is unrivaled, a talent which is richly on display in each and every song.
When You Know, Reeves' most recent release, is a collection of love songs whose perspective on love ranges from youthful innocence to enlightened maturity.
    Reeves appeared in George Clooneys Good Night, and Good Luck, the Academy Award-nominated film that chronicles Edward R. Murrows confrontation with Senator Joseph McCarthy. The soundtrack recording of Good Night, and Good Luck provided Reeves her fourth Best Jazz Vocal Grammy in 2006.
    Reeves has recorded and performed with Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra; the Chicago Symphony Orchestra conducted by Daniel Barenboim; and was a featured soloist with Sir Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic.
    Reeves was the first Creative Chair for Jazz for the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the first singer to ever perform at the famed Walt Disney Concert Hall.
    The Reading Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Andrew Constantine, is one of the oldest orchestras in the country, and has collaborated with Berks Jazz Fest artists in the past, including Bela Fleck & the Flecktones and Poncho Sanchez & His Latin Jazz Band.
