The StFX Music Department's Visiting Artist Series is back for another year of live Jazz performances. The first of the series features world-renowned, award-winning UK vocalist Norma Winstone in concert with members of the StFX Music Faculty.
In a career spanning over 50 years, Norma has recorded many albums under her own name, most notably on the ECM label; been a founding member of the jazz supergroup Azimuth, and has collaborated with a very long list of contemporary musicians from around the globe.
“state-of-the-art, imaginative, virtually beyond-definition singing” (LA Times)
