Cabaret At The Workshop: "A Legacy Of Melodies" W/ Connye Florance says
Vocalist Connye Florance headlines the next installment of the NJW's new Cabaret at the Workshop series, with a program entitled "A Legacy of Melodies."

A masterful performer with a voice that has been called “velvet and wine,” Connye Florance shines a light on America's jazz heritage with A Legacy of Melodies. Connye shares her lifelong relationship with jazz, her personal musical heritage, and a flair for poetic lyric as story. Her audience discovers that this rich legacy, rooted deep in African American culture, is planted in their own lives as a universal inheritance for all.

Connye Florance has gained international attention for her music with jazz fans and adult contemporary listeners alike - from nightclub and theater performances on and off Broadway -to headline and featured appearances at area jazz festivals. She was Jazz Discovery's "Vocalist of the Year" in 2000, just after her 1999 independent release, Turn My Heart, won a Nashville Grammy nomination for Album of the Year.

The Cabaret at the Workshop series made its debut in the summer of 2015 as the Jazz Workshop's newest offering, a performance series showcasing the art of cabaret and drawing on the Workshop's rich vocal offerings devoted to the American Popular Song.

The performance begins at 7:00 pm in the Jazz Cave at the Nashville Jazz Workshop. Tickets will go on sale Monday, February 8 at 10:00 am, and are $20 ($10 for high school and college students). Advance purchase is strongly recommended. Tickets will be available online from Brown Paper Tickets, by phone 24/7 at 800-838-3006, or 615-242-5299 during business hours.
