Touted as the new Diana Krall, Sarah McKenzie makes her Festival debut.
She was awarded a full scholarship to attend the prestigious Berklee College of Music after her performance at the Umbria Jazz Festival Competition. After graduating she was snapped up by the iconic label Impulse! and has performed on jazz music’s most iconic stages.
Her full-bodied touch on the piano, paired with her delicate yet soaring vocal finesse, evoke qualities of Norah Jones or Diana Krall. Her individualistic voice and compelling phrasing will be showcased on classic tunes from Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Henry Mancini, Duke Ellington and Jerome Kern.
