The H. Fred Simons African American Cultural Center (AACC) & the UConn Women's Center are excited to cohost the Samara Joy Cabaret!
Rising star Samara Joy’s velvety, smooth voice puts her own enchanting interpretation on jazz standards from the Great American Songbook. After winning the 2019 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition at the age of 19, she released her debut album Samara Joy. One of the most promising young vocalists, she has already performed in many of the great jazz venues in New York, including Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola, The Blue Note and the Apollo. On her latest release, Linger Awhile (Verve Records), the 22-year-old makes her case to join the likes of Sarah, Ella and Billie as the next jazz singing sensation.
This in-person event will be held in the Jorgensen Center on Friday, 11/18, at 8:00 PM. Tickets are available through the Jorgensen Center.
