Le Moyne College Jazzuits Host Jazz Artist Nancy Kelly

<p>SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … On Sunday, February 24, at 3 p.m. in the James Commons, Campus Center, on the Le Moyne College campus, the Le Moyne College Jazzuits, under the direction of Carol Jacobe, will host vocal jazz artist Nancy Kelly. <br /> <br /> Nancy Kelly's refined vocal style is a study in phrasing, style and the ability to swing. Kelly's powerful singing has captured many awards and the ears of many jazz fans around the globe. Refined stage presence, style, grace, and the ability to quickly capture the emotions of her audience isn't the only thing that places Nancy in a league of her own -- the lady was “Born to Swing,” and she means business.<br /> <br /> During her thirty-plus year career she has honed her trademark swing/bop take-no-prisoners style in front of audiences across the U.S. and abroad -- from Singapore to Switzerland, France, Turkey, to her three tours of Japan. Nancy appears regularly in New York City including performances at The Blue Note, Birdland and The Rainbow Room and Dizzy's Jazz club, Lincoln Center. She works frequently in Los Angeles and Miami, as well as countless jazz clubs, festivals, and symphony orchestra engagements across the country. Downbeat magazine's reader's poll voted Kelly the title of “best female jazz vocalist” two years in a row.<br /> <br /> The afternoon concert will feature jazz standards performed by members of The Jazzuits and by Nancy Kelly. Kelly will also join The Jazzuits on four tunes to close the concert. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors, $3 for students and can be reserved by calling 638-9485.</p>
