New York Voices
WP opera students present scenes from various operatic works with piano, led by WP professors Christopher Dylan Herbert and Lois Buesser.
The young violinist Daisy Castro has grown to become a major part of gypsy jazz music worldwide, including appearances at Django Reinhardt celebrations in New York, across the US and Europe. Daisy began violin studies in the usual way with Suzuki and school orchestras, but fell in love with gypsy jazz on a France visit with her parents. Her debut CD, Gypsy Moth was released at age 13, and she has been appearing on the world’s stages since then, appearing with violinist Mark O’Connor, guitarist Howard Alden, and many more. Her high-energy gypsy swing will certainly make a wonderful impression in her first Jazz Room performance.

With the inspiration that Nat King Cole’s TV show brought to the American public which included so many amazingly talented singers such as Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Carmen McRae and many others, John Pizzarelli and Catherine Russell pay homage to Nat King Cole and these iconic singers. This new show is timely for John Pizzarelli who recently released a Nat King Cole tribute album. He also shares a deep connection to William Paterson with his father and historic jazz guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli. Catherine Russell returns by popular demand. Together, they bring Nat King Cole’s most memorable hits such as Route 66, Straighten Up and Fly Right, and Paper Moon along with the timeless works from Billie Holiday and the Ladies of Song.
