Grammy nominated Jazz vocalist Jazzmeia Horn performs at Bailey Hall. Horn is the winner of both the Thelonious Monk Institute Competition and Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition.
Originally from Dallas, Texas, Jazzmeia Horn became a New Yorker while attending the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. Possessing a luminous gift that the late Jon Hendricks called “… one of the best voices I’ve heard in over 40 years,” the 2015 Thelonious Monk Competition winner is a rising jazz superstar. Her 2017 debut, A Social Call, was nominated for a Grammy Award and voted the best jazz vocal debut in the 2017 NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll.
