The McCallum Theatre welcomes back Grammy Award-winning American R&B vocalist/songwriter Lisa Fischer who was “rediscovered” through her memorable appearance in the Oscar-winning documentary, 20 Feet from Stardom. While her name hasn’t always been on the marquee, she has toured with the Rolling Stones, Sting, Chris Botti and Nine Inch Nails and recorded backup for the likes of Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, Beyonce, Dolly Parton, Alicia Keyes, Aretha Franklin, George Benson, Jackie Evancho, and many others.
Grammy Award-winning vocalist Steve Tyrell has reinvented and re-popularized classic pop standards for a modern audience. Known for his rich voice and unique phrasings, Tyrell has been a McCallum Theatre regular for more than fifteen years. “Steve Tyrell has one of the most gratifying Cinderella stories in present day popular music. Nine albums later, Tyrell is one of the main contemporary purveyors of standards on the pop landscape.”

Canadian singer, trumpeter, and songwriter Bria Skonberg is described by The Wall Street Journal as one of the “most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation.” Wielding a unique blend of modern-day pop sensibility and sizzling musicianship, Skonberg creates music that is both curious and exotic, playing with tension and storytelling. Elite jazz chops, artfully mixed with worldly rhythms and contemporary songwriting, result in a sophisticated pop sound closely resembling that of Michael Bublé, Diana Krall, and Harry Connick Jr.
Antônio Carlos Jobim was a Brazilian composer, pianist, songwriter, arranger and singer who was a primary force behind the creation of the bossa nova style, and his songs have been performed by many singers and instrumentalists. The McCallum favorite John Pizzarelli pays tribute to Jobim in a concert that will have you doing the samba in the aisles.
