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
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.
