Cécile McLorin Salvant

FRIDAY, JUNE 7, 2019

Venue Berlind Theatre


Salvant, regularly and rightly, is considered one of the greatest jazz singers of her generation, but that label sells her short.

The reigning jazz vocalist of her generation returns to McCarter after picking up her third Grammy this year for her latest album The Window. Hailed as the heiress to the “Big Three”—Holiday, Vaughan, and Fitzgerald—she is a vocal virtuoso who examines songs rather than simply inhabiting them.  Her singing amounts to a kind of conversation with every song, its lyrics, and its historical context. Joining her will be the indispensable pianist Fred Hersch, who has re-invented the jazz standard repertoire with fourteen Grammy nominations and over 50 recordings as composer, bandleader, and innovator of individualistic jazz.

This event is part of the Jazz in June Festival.


Join us in McCarter’s Lockwood Lobby from 5:00pm – 8:00pm on June 7, 8, 14, 15, and 22!

There will be delicious food and drinks available for purchase, plus music and activities for the whole family.

Pre-show admission and activities are FREE and OPEN to the PUBLIC.
