Joyce and George T Wein Shape of Jazz Series: Claudia Acuna

Friday, February 7, 2025, 9 pm
Zankel Hall @ Carnegie Hall

New York–based Chilean jazz vocalist Claudia Acuña leads her band in the intimate Zankel Hall Center Stage, which seats audiences all around the artists—an ideal setting for this event. The celebrated vocalist brings a lovingly curated selection of Latin American standards, songs that she notes “have lived from generation through generation beyond language and borders.” Among the featured selections are festive and poignant songs made famous to American listeners by Nat King Cole’s trio of Spanish-language albums. Acuña now reimagines the songbook for today’s audiences with her own captivating sound.
