Music Fusion Master to Perform at The Table for Morning Worship

February 20, 2014

Grace Kelly who describes herself as a "Music Fusion Master" because of her skills as a singer, saxophonist, composer, lyricist, arranger, producer, and educator, will perform during morning worship at The Table on Sunday, March, 2, during the 10:30 a.m. service. She will perform with The Table's music director, Brenden Lowe.
Trumpeter and Jazz at Lincoln Center Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis said of the 21-year-old Kelly, "Grace Kelly plays with intelligence, wit and feeling. She has a great amount of natural ability and the ability to adapt that is the hallmark of a first-class jazz musician." He was so impressed with Kelly’s three-night stand as guest of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra that he invited her to join the ensemble at the Kennedy Center’s Eisenhower Theater in Washington, D.C. for President Barack Obama's Inauguration Celebration.
Harry Connick, Jr. heard Kelly in a master class on a December afternoon and brought her on stage to sit in with his band that night. Since then, Kelly has been voted "Best Jazz Act” in Boston four consecutive years in the FNX/Phoenix Best Music Poll, and then voted Best National Jazz Act in 2012. She has received the ASCAP Foundation’s Young Jazz Composers Award in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2013 and won "Jazz Artist of the Year” at the Boston Music Awards in both 2008 and 2010. The 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Downbeat Critics Poll added to her the list naming her one of the "Alto Saxophone Rising Stars”, the youngest artist ever to be named to the music poll.

Kelly has taught residency workshops at Berklee College since 2012.

Since age 12, Kelly has performed over 600 concerts as a leader all around the world at prominent venues such as the Hollywood Bowl, Montreal Jazz Festival, Newport Jazz Festival, Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Apollo Theater, Birdland, Boston’s Symphony Hall, Montreux Jazz Festival, Dizzy’s Club Cocoa Cola, Ronnie Scott’s (London), Porgy & Bess (Vienna), Scullers Jazz Club, and in venues as far away as Europe and Asia. She has also released seven full-length albums and recorded with other artists as well.

The church is located at 5265 H Street in East Sacramento.
