PRESENTING LAURIN TALESE
Laurin Talese has been captivating audiences with her voice since childhood. Although her greatest affinity is jazz, Talese is versatile within many musical genres. She has shared the stage with international recording artists such as Bilal, Gregory Porter, Patti LaBelle, Robert Glasper, Vivian Green. She has performed with the renowned classical and jazz ensembles The Cleveland Jazz Heritage Orchestra, The Moses Hogan Chorale, and the internationally acclaimed Mozarteum Orchestra of Salzburg, Austria. Laurin’s talents have allowed her to travel the globe, performing most recently in front of a sold-out crowd at the New Jersey Center for Performing Arts (NJPAC) in November 2018 when Talese won the seventh annual Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition.
