The TRUMUSIC Series is proud to present the fabulous Miss Rosalyn McClore performing tonite at: Rockwood Music Hall - 6pm 196 Allen Street (Bet'n Houston & Stanton) NY NY, 10002 (No Cover) Wednesday, May 21st Born in Memphis, Tennessee , Rosalyn grew up playing gospel music in church every Sunday starting at the age of 13. Formal instruction began at age seven, "My parents were constantly seeking out more challenging learning environments for me." By the time Rosalyn reached Memphis State University, she had discovered a deep love for jazz. In addition to studying with a classical instructor as well as a jazz instructor, Rosalyn studied privately with the great jazz pianists, Phinneaus Newborne Jr, and Mulgrew Miller. "It was then that I started listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, and Nancy Wilson". This is where Rosalyn developed a love for cabaret style singing and performing. Since moving to NY Rosalyn has performed for Sting, Micheal Jordan, Martha Stewart, the Kennedy family, and Ron Perelman. In addition she has also performed at Helen's Hideaway Lounge and other major venues in NY where she has received stellar reviews. John Hoglund of Backstage Magazine has said "After spotting exciting newcomer Rosalyn McClore at this years' Cabaret Convention, I felt compelled to see more. From her two numbers on stage at Lincoln Center, it was obvious she knew her way around a hot keyboard and a song. Her show, featuring the songs of Stephen Sondheim and Nina Simone and backed by a three-piece band, proved a serious step towards gaining recognition. She is sassy, dramatic, sensual, and fully committed to her material. And not only can she sing well, she can interpret with style and bring new meaning to familiar tunes. - Nov 2005 You don't wanna miss this show.. See you there.
