The Hanover Theatre and 90.5 WICN Public Radio, in collaboration with The Theatre District Alliance, are pleased to present Jazz at Sunset featuring singer, songwriter and sax player extraordinaire, Grace Kelly, and her band to a very limited audience of 50. Come and enjoy the cool sounds of live jazz while sipping on complimentary wine, beer, a signature cocktail, soda or water and snacking on tasty treats at private tables on the Francis Carroll Plaza, directly in front of the theatre. While we are planning an event with the highest level of concern for everyone's safety, if you'd rather enjoy the concert from home, we also plan to livestream the event. Attendees should be aware that they may be visible as audience members to home viewers.
An unequivocal musical prodigy, singer-saxophonist-songwriter-composer Grace Kelly has rocked the jazz world with sold-out concerts, 13 acclaimed albums and a resume that includes performing at the Hollywood Bowl and as part of the house band for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” all before reaching her mid-20's.
Kelly’s early career featured performances at Barack Obama’s 2016 inauguration and as a soloist with the Boston Pops playing an original composition arranged for the legendary orchestra. She has since played over 900 shows as bandleader in 35 countries at venues like the Kennedy Center and Moscow Symphony Hall and for the Montreal, Newport, and Montreux international jazz festivals. Touted for her scorching saxophone stylings and purring vocals, Kelly has performed and recorded with renowned artists including Lin Manuel-Miranda, Dave Brubeck, Phil Woods, Huey Lewis, Harry Connick Jr., Gloria Estefan, Questlove, and Wynton Marsalis.
As the Winner of “Song of the Year” for her single “Feels Like Home” in the 2018 John Lennon Songwriting Contest, Kelly has also won multiple ASCAP Composer Awards, Boston Music Awards, DOWNBEAT music awards and International Songwriting Awards. She has also appeared as a featured performer in films and television, including acclaimed documentary, “Sound of Redemption: The Frank Morgan Story,” Amazon’s Emmy®-nominated original series “Bosch” and the 2017 Emmy®-winning Yamaha production “The Right Note.”
Featured by Vanity Fair as a millennial shaking up the jazz world, Kelly’s state-of-the-art brand of electro jazz-pop and inventive digital content are pushing her to the forefront of the fusion scene, alongside names like Snarky Puppy, Jacob Collier, Cory Henry, Robert Glasper, Jon Batiste, and Too Many Zooz. Kelly’s live performance is offering a unique musical journey and contagious exuberance on stage. Performing her fresh, playful musical stylings, Grace’s infectious positivity and charismatic stage presence bring a smile to everyone.
