An Evening With… Kurt Elling and The Springfield Symphony Jazz Orchestra

Learning Through Art, Inc. presents An Evening With… Kurt Elling, renowned for his singular combination of robust swing and poetic insight, the two-time GRAMMY winner has secured his place among the world’s foremost jazz vocalists. Over a twenty-five-year career of touring and recording, Elling has won three Prix du Jazz Vocal (France), two German Echo Awards, two Dutch Edison Awards, and has been nominated for a GRAMMY award fifteen times. He has had a 14-year run atop the DownBeat Critics and Readers polls and has won twelve Jazz Journalists Awards for “Male Vocalist of the Year”.

Kurt Elling’s voice is instantly recognizable, embracing listeners with his warm, rich baritone and navigating the full span of his four-octave range as a virtuoso improvisor and a compelling storyteller. The Guardian (UK) has named Kurt Elling, “a kind of Sinatra with superpowers,” and, “one of jazz’s all-time great vocalists.”

Elling has recorded and toured with Branford Marsalis, Danilo Perez, Stefon Harris, Fred Hersch, James Morrison, and Charlie Hunter. He has performed extensively with larger ensembles like The Clayton/Hamilton Orchestra, The National Youth Orchestra (led by Sean Jones), The Bob Mintzer Big Band, The BBC Concert Symphony (led by Guy Barker) The Metropole Orchestra (Holland), The Irish Radio and Television Orchestra (led by Brian Byrne), The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, and The WDR Orchestra and Big Band (Germany).

The Springfield Symphony Jazz Orchestra with Todd Stoll, Artistic Director, join Elling featuring the preeminent jazz musicians based in Ohio that functions under the administration of the Springfield Symphony Orchestra. A Springfield native, Todd Stoll is Vice President of Education at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City, the world’s largest institution dedicated to promoting and presenting jazz.
