Everleigh Vineyards & Brewing Company – Stephanie Nakasian

Stephanie Nakasian

We welcome the first visit to Everleigh Vineyards by a living legend of vocal jazz performance and pedagogy, Ms. Stephanie Nakasian. She first came to international attention when she sang and toured from 1983 to 1984 with Jon Hendricks and Company.  She has appeared frequently as a guest artist with the Jim Cullum Jazz Band on their internationally syndicated public radio show, Riverwalk Jazz, to portray a variety of jazz singers. More recently, Nakasian portrayed herself on the show with Dick Hyman for tributes to composers Hoagy Carmichael and Walter Donaldson. She appears at international festivals and national music education conferences including the MENC, MTNA, and IAJE nationals. She has appeared in concerts as a featured performer alongside important figures in jazz, including Urbie Green, Pat Metheny, Clark Terry, Scott Hamilton, Hank Jones, Roy Haynes, Philly Joe Jones, and Annie Ross.
