DAYTON OH – The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra’s 09-10 National City SuperPops Series will continue with concerts featuring acclaimed jazz vocalist Jane Monheit on Friday and Saturday, November 20 & 21, 2009, both performances at 8 p.m. at the Schuster Center.
Joining Monheit and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will be her trio of top-notch jazz musicians: Michael Kanan, piano, Neal Miner, bass, and Rick Montalbano, drums. Patrick Reynolds, Assistant Conductor of the DPO, will conduct. This will be Ms. Monheit’s DPO Schuster Center debut.
With a quickly expanding recorded catalog, Jane Monheit is still a relative newcomer to the jazz world. Coming onto the scene in 2000 with a dreamily innocent disc called Never Never Land, she may be the century’s first major interpreter of the classic song style. With her recent CD, The Lovers, The Dreamers and Me, she has layered a new dimension of sophistication over her sultry, honey-voiced style. As Time Magazine says: “Jane Monheit can’t miss. She has, in a word, everything.”
Tickets for the concerts range from $25 – $75 and are available by calling (888) 228-3630 or by ordering on the web at www.daytonphilharmonic.com.
