Two-time Grammy Award-winner Diane Schuur’s powerhouse vocals and dynamic range take over The American Theatre for a can’t-miss concert of contemporary jazz. Influenced by the great Dinah Washington, Schuur’s musical style has evolved throughout her celebrated career from her 1979 discovery at the Monterey Jazz Festival to her latest album, Running on Faith. Blind since birth, Schuur first learned to play piano by ear, picking out tunes on the keys with two fingers at the age of 3. “I sang to myself at night,” recalls Schuur. More than a dozen albums later, the jazz great has performed around the world, including Carnegie Hall and with leading orchestras. “I plan to continue my reading of classic American song,” reflects Schuur, “paying respect to celebrated writers and polishing their gems in the jazz tradition.”
