"One of the most emotionally captivating vocalists on the New York jazz scene." --Hot House Jazz magazine
Brooklyn's own Alicia Olatuja first received national recognition for her soaring solo with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir at President Obama's second inauguration, and has since established herself as one of this generation's most versatile and elegant jazz artists. Her sublime voice has graced the stage of major venues across the country with a combination of velvety tone and vibrant confidence. Drawing from a wide range of musical influences—including classical, gospel, and R&B—she returns home to Brooklyn with her scintillating jazz stylings.
NOTE: Audience members are invited to join us before the concert at 7pm for a discussion and Q&A with Alicia Olatuja in the Kumble Theater lobby.
