SOUTH ORANGE, NJ - Grammy Award-nominated Jane Monheit will appear at the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) on Saturday, February 8 at 8 p.m.
Monheit has been a leading vocalist in both the jazz and cabaret worlds since emerging as a finalist in the Thelonious Monk Institute’s 1998 competition. In addition to her own recordings, she has worked alongside Terence Blanchard, Tom Harrell, Ivan Lins and more.
Monheit is touring in support of her album The Heart of the Matter, which she says is an especially satisfying collaboration with Grammy Award-winning producer Gil Goldstein, who has previously worked with such giants as Wayne Shorter, Gil Evans, and Pat Metheny. The pair first joined forces for part of Monheit’s 2009 album The Lovers, The Dreamers, and Me.
