Join us in the lobby at 6:45pm for a complimentary wine tasting by Pera Wines and an art exhibit by Catherine Rose Heller!

Blessed with “a voice of phenomenal beauty” (Stephen Holden, New York Times), Jane Monheit has had plenty of milestone moments in establishing herself as one of today’s best and most important vocalist-musicians. At the young age of 20, Jane became first runner-up in the 1998 Thelonious Monk Institute’s vocal competition behind the late, great Teri Thornton. The Grammy Award-nominated jazz and pop vocalist has gone on to collaborate with John Pizzarelli, Michael Buble, Terence Blanchard, Tom Harrell and others. Monheit is a favorite in both the jazz and cabaret worlds, known for her sincere and romantic interpretations of songs – most notably her version of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.” Don’t miss this evening of jazz standards!

Catherine Rose Heller is an artist and photographer from Ridgefield, CT currently residing in Brooklyn, NY. She has studied at the SACI College of Art & Design in Florence, Italy and received her BS Degree in Studio Art from Skidmore College in 2017. Catherine has been a teaching artist at the One River School of Art & Design in Larchmont, NY, illustrated the children’s book “Have You Seen a Dinosaur?” by Matthew Beres, and has had her work featured in a number of national and international exhibitions.  Her painting “My Mind, My Body, My Freedom, and it’s Censorship” will be on display at the Ridgefield Guild of Artists 41st Annual Juried Show opening Sept. 22nd.  www.catherineheller.com.
