From South Orange Performing Arts Center:
Cyrille Aimée brings her acclaimed show A Sondheim Adventure to the South Orange Performing Arts Center on Sunday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m. Hailed for her interpretations of the Sondheim masterworks, Cyrille Aimée brings a jazzy fresh take to the lovely complexities of the legendary composer’s musical theatre masterpieces, and makes them sparkle anew.
Winner of the 2012 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Competition, Cyrille Aimée, has a wealth of experiences in her young life that have shaped her sound and love of music. She ventured from singing on street corners in Europe to dazzling audiences at the world’s most prestigious Jazz festivals; from sneaking out to sing in gypsy encampments in her native France to acting on Broadway; from singing Sondheim alongside Bernadette Peters to sharing her story in a TEDx talk; from braving the notoriously tough audiences at New York’s Apollo Theatre to being called a “rising star in the galaxy of Jazz singers” by The New York Times.
