Jazz with Neha : An evening of Whimsy, Soul and Music
Posted March 21st, 2013 - 3:04 am by from Cambridge, United States (Permalink)
A young siren with magnetic stage presence, Neha brings an intriguing uniqueness to her music that will leave you wanting more. Her vocal lines boast embellishments that will whisk you away to the jazz world of the 1930s and 40s. A young woman who's only at the beginning of her career, Neha works the audience with an intimate finesse.

A graduate of Northwestern University with a B.A. in Economics, Neha spent four years working for Google in the Bay Area before leaving to pursue a graduate degree in jazz vocal performance at the New England Conservatory of Music.

Since graduating from NEC in May of 2012, Neha been actively engaged in the Boston performance scene, performing at prestigious venues like Scullers Jazz Club and Club Passim. In New York, her performance credits include headlining at the famous off-Broadway show "Sleep No More." Most recently, Neha came off a mini tour performing the world premiere of "Project Gilgamesh" in Cleveland, Ohio written by multi-talented contemporary violinist and composer Daniel Bernard Roumain.

In addition to being an an active performer, Neha is seasoned educator. She's conducted a jazz and voice residency in Jacmel, Haiti, and teaches on the faculty at The Community Music Center of Boston and as a Teaching Artist for the Metropolitan Opera Guild.
