“For Stephanie Nakasian it’s all about Swing”
Stephanie Nakasian swings where angels fear to tread, scatting into vocal territory that others avoid, beguiling audiences with intricate improvisations and soaring melodic lines. More than just a singer, she's a music theorist and scholar, and a professor at the University of Virginia and The College of William and Mary; armed with encyclopedic knowledge, she mines the art and lore of jazz to spice up her concerts with stories and little-known twists to the tales behind the music.
