Today’s performance features Andromeda Turre, a dynamic jazz vocalist and composer who has performed with Taraji P. Henson, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Bublé, and others.
Andromeda was raised in a family of Jazz musicians and draws from the genre as both a vocalist and composer. As part of the Jazz community, she was privileged to benefit from the tutelage of icons such as Dizzy Gillespie, Max Roach and Wynton Marsalis.
She studied Theater at The Boston Conservatory and Vocal Performance at the esteemed Berklee College of Music. She was the last Raelette to sing background vocals for Ray Charles before starring in Woody Allen’s Murder Mystery Blues off-Broadway. In Japan, she reigned as “Queen of the Blues” at Tokyo Disney for nearly two years. While there, she produced her first album, Introducing Andromeda Turre, and toured in over 17 countries across Asia and Europe.
Over the last ten years she has performed as a background vocalist on Saturday Night Live and worked with Taraji P. Henson, Jennifer Lopez, and Michael Buble. Her original compositions have been used in film, television, and video games. She composed the score and 13 original songs for Lena: Lessons from a Lady, a musical about the life of Lena Horne at Baltimore Center Stage.
Andromeda founded Growing Up Jazz to offer an often-neglected view of American history and an opportunity to discuss issues pertaining to diversity, equity, and inclusion through the arts.
In 2022, she served as Artistic Director for Central Park’s premier Juneteenth Celebration, in addition to curating the music for the national tour of Aquila Theater’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby.
