The Catskill Jazz Factory continues its fruitful collaboration with Bard College with the Catskill Jazz Factory at the Spiegeltent summer series. The series launches with a performance by Jazzmeia Horn, one of today’s elite jazz vocal talents, on Thursday, July 7 at 8 p.m. Horn’s repertoire spans Negro spirituals and adventurous contemporary jazz sounds. Her shows are organized as a coherent musical suite, fusing live jazz with dance in a multi-movement work. The winner of the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition in 2015, Horn is often compared to classic vocalists like Betty Carter, Sarah Vaughan and Nancy Wilson.
The Spiegeltent, a Weimar-era traveling structure is situated on the Bard campus every summer, provides perhaps the most surreal venue for Bard’s overstuffed SummerScape programming. This being Bard, the music is always world-class as well.
Ticket prices for Jazzmeia Horn range from $25 to $45. For tickets and more information on the Catskill Jazz Factory at the Spiegeltent summer series, visit www.catskilljazzfactory.org. The Spiegeltent is located near the Fisher Center on the campus of Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson. For more information on Bard SummerScape, visit http://fishercenter.bard.edu/summerscape.
