Jazz singer Cyrille Aimée (Suh-real Ah-may), winner of the Montreux Jazz Festival’s vocal competition, will make her Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State debut at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 12, in Schwab Auditorium.
Aimée’s voice is described as being “like a fine whiskey—oaky and smooth, with a hint of smokiness,” by a writer for the Washington Post.
Tickets for the concert are $38 for an adult, $17 for a University Park student and $28 for a person 18 and under. Buy tickets online at www.cpa.psu.edu or by phone at 814-863-0255.
