Jazzmeia Horn is a vocalist and composer, author, activist, educator, multi-GRAMMY Award nominee, and winner of the 2015 Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Competition. Praised by The New York Times as “among the most exciting young vocalists in jazz, with a proud traditionalism that keeps her tightly linked to the sound of classic figures like Nancy Wilson and Betty Carter, but a vivacity of spirit and conviction that places her firmly in the present,” Horn makes her Harris Theater debut with performances on the Mix at Six and Family Series in 2024.

Horn, who will publish her first children’s book — based on her forthcoming album Messages — in 2024, is creating a special storyteller-style program for the Family Series that will premiere on the Harris Theater stage. Blending works from her GRAMMY-nominated albums and stories from her life and career, the program will engage audiences of all ages in Horn’s unique sound and musical influences.

“Her tunes are so good, others are sure to try them on, but then they’ll have to sing them as well as Jazzmeia Horn does. Her interpretations set a standard of their own.”  NPR
