A soul queen with a commanding voice and a hugely charismatic stage presence, Bettye LaVette comes to Rockport in the midst of a long-deserved career renaissance. The Grammy-nominated singer was recently given the Blues Music Award for Soul Blues Female Singer of the Year.
With their masterful combination of jumping, horn-heavy blues and R&B, it’s no wonder why the great Count Basie called them “the hottest blues band I’ve ever heard.”
The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center is highly regarded throughout the country for its performance, education, and recording/broadcast activities, drawing more people to chamber music than any other organization of its kind. This concert will feature works by Beethoven, Weber, and Schumann.
