SAVE THE DATE – Monday, February 19, NJO featuring Connye Florance, Nashville’s Lady of Swing on stage at City Winery!
Her rich, creamy voice has soothed and inspired audiences across the country, as she’s spent the last decade plus of her career headlining concerts and jazz festivals from New York to Nevada. Her one-woman show, Jazz Rhapsody, reviewed as absolutely breathtaking has enraptured audiences from Wisconsin to Miami and as far west as the Carson Valley in Nevada.
