Join the Schomburg every Monday in March for this annual tradition during Women’s History Month featuring some of the best known and unsung performers in jazz today. Throughout the month, we will explore sounds from Haiti to a celebration of jazz pianist Hazel Scott’s centennial birthday. @SchomburgCenter #WJF2020

PRESENTING LAURIN TALESE
Laurin Talese has been captivating audiences with her voice since childhood. Although her greatest affinity is jazz, Talese is versatile within many musical genres. She has shared the stage with international recording artists such as Bilal, Gregory Porter, Patti LaBelle, Robert Glasper, Vivian Green. She has performed with the renowned classical and jazz ensembles The Cleveland Jazz Heritage Orchestra, The Moses Hogan Chorale, and the internationally acclaimed Mozarteum Orchestra of Salzburg, Austria. Laurin’s talents have allowed her to travel the globe, performing most recently in front of a sold-out crowd at the New Jersey Center for Performing Arts (NJPAC) in November 2018 when Talese won the seventh annual Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition.
