Laurin Talese

February 19 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$29 – $49

Laurin Talese has been captivating audiences with her pure tone and poignant lyrics since childhood. A Cleveland, Ohio native, Laurin was classically trained at the Cleveland Institute of Music and later studied classical and jazz voice at the University of the Arts where she received a bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance. Her debut album, Gorgeous Chaos, released in 2016, features a stellar line up of musicians and was met with wide acclaim.

Ms. Talese’s talents have allowed her to travel around the globe, performing in a host of internationally renowned venues including the Newport Jazz Festival, Jazz at Lincoln Center Shanghai, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in 2018 when Laurin won the seventh annual Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition.

In 2019, Laurin Talese represented the United States as a cultural ambassador with American Music Abroad – an initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Following in the footsteps of former Ambassadors Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington, and Dave Brubeck, she performed for audiences throughout Eastern Europe and led educational workshops to bring jazz to new populations.

Ms. Talese is also an active member of the Philadelphia music community – serving on the board of Jazz Philadelphia as well as the Recording Academy’s Philadelphia chapter where she was recently appointed Vice President.

Laurin will be performing music from her upcoming release: Museum Of Living Stories commissioned by Chamber Music America.
