A JazzTheatre Experience
Take an award-winning vocalist with a "captivating" presence and a double-sided, prolific career in professional theatre and jazz...
Add exquisite accompaniment and a musical mosaic of classic jazz and jazz-painted contemporary favorites, spoken word; plus a dash of theatrical elegance and flavor. That's what we call JazzTheatre. It is certainly the most fitting label for Singing The Legacy.
Showcasing the music of Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Billy Strayhorn and other icons of America's original music, "Singing the Legacy" takes you on a 90 minute journey across
6 decades of timeless music, revealing its impact on our cultural history.
Lovingly dubbed "The Dynamic Duo" by fans, professional peers and friends alike,
Connye Florance and Kevin Madill not only make lush, beautiful music together; they bring you an engaging experience in jazz expression that is perfectly and powerfully in sync.
"Connye's singing immediately captivated me with a mixture of soft soul and great taste."
Music Legend Leon Russell
“A ticket to a Connye Florance concert should probably include a warning: Prolonged exposure to this singer’s velvety vocals can induce an involuntary, trance-like state of blissful nirvana”
John Pitcher, ArtNashville
"I have been an admirer, fan, and friend of these two marvelous musicians for over two decades, and it is my pleasure to recommend their music to anyone who enjoys great music artistically performed.”
