Karrin Allyson

Karrin Allyson


The widely respected vocalist Karrin Allyson has a career that spans musical genres, including jazz and pop standards, the Great American Songbook, vocalise versions of instrumental jazz compositions, and repertoire in five different languages. She released 12 albums on the prestigious Concord label, and has received five Grammy nominations, including recognition for her all-Rodgers & Hammerstein CD and for her recreation of the iconic John Coltrane Ballads album, collaborating with the late WP jazz studies director and pianist James Williams. Her much-praised newest recording is Shoulder to Shoulder: A Centennial Tribute to Women’s Suffrage. We are excited that she has just joined the William Paterson adjunct jazz faculty this fall.

Each Jazz Room concert is preceded by Sittin’ In Meet-the-Artist session in Shea 101 Recital Hall one hour prior to performances. Sittin’ In is free to all ticket holders. This gives audience members the rare opportunity to meet and interact with the artist of the day in an intimate setting.

Admission: $15 General Public • $12 WP community & senior citizens • $8 Non-WP students • WP Students admitted free with ID • $5 additional charge on show day per ticket.
