Stacey Kent, Nichols Flickinger Performing Arts Center, Sunday, 21. June 2020

“Thoroughly captivating…(Kent’s) voice has startling clarity, turning phrase after phrase with subtlety and an impeccable feel for the music.”
— Billboard

“Ms. Kent embodied the essence of Saudade as persuasively as any of her Brazilian idols. As she threw back her head and crooned softly, you had the sense of a woman with nothing to protect, living in the moment and dreaming out loud.”
— The New York Times
Critically acclaimed, GRAMMY® nominated singer, Stacey Kent, sings from the soul, telling her stories with faultless phrasing and a lucid, enchanting voice. Her most recent release, “I Know I Dream: The Orchestral Sessions”, won ‘Album of the Year’ in the vocal category at the 2017 Jazz Japan Awards.
The rich musical tapestry contrasts with her previous intimate collaboration with Brazilian music master Roberto Menescal, “Tenderly,” (2015 SONY) and the exuberant, ”Marcos Valle & Stacey Kent Live,” (2013 SONY). Stacey’s other recent albums include the Brazilian-flavored, “The Changing Lights,” (Warner), “Dreamer In Concert,” and the GRAMMY® nominated, platinum-selling, “Breakfast on the Morning Tram.” (2007)
Throughout her career, Stacey has partnered with Jim Tomlinson (sax) whose songwriting partnership with Nobel Prize-winning novelist Kazuo Ishiguro has come to form an essential plank in her distinctive repertoire.
