Jazz at Sunset ’22
August 19 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm
The Hanover Theatre and 90.5 WICN Public Radio, in collaboration with Downtown Worcester Business Improvement District, are pleased to present Jazz at Sunset 2022, featuring singer, songwriter, and sax player extraordinaire, Grace Kelly!
Grace has been part of the WICN family since she was a 12-year-old prodigy. Come and enjoy the cool sounds of live jazz as the area behind the theatre is transformed into an outdoor, picnic-style concert venue that will include food trucks and cash bars. Doors open at 5:30pm; show begins at 6:30pm.
Acclaimed singer-songwriter Grace Kelly has announced a new U.S. tour supporting her upcoming album, All That I Need. This Jazz at Sunset concert will be the tour kick-off!
After two years of isolation, Grace Kelly is excited to get back on the road and see her fans again. The tour name, Good To See You Again, was inspired by the time she spent away from her fans during the pandemic. “It’s been a long time!” says Kelly. “This will feel like a reunion!”
Kelly’s honors include multiple ASCAP Composer Awards, Song of the Year in the 2018 John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and has been named nine times consecutively in the annual Downbeat Magazine's Critics Poll Rising Star, Alto Saxophone award from the age of 17 in 2009 and winning the poll in 2017 (Youngest ever named to the Downbeat critics poll in 2009.). She has played in the house band for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and was featured in Amazon’s Emmy-nominated series Bosch.
Grammy and Academy Award winner and bandleader for The Late Show with Steven Colbert, Jon Batiste, has called Grace Kelly a performer with “electric charisma.” In a statement, Kelly remarked how live performance is one of her favorite things to do and that connecting with her audience is a special experience. She says, “We need that human-to-human connection more than ever during these times, and it’s going to feel amazing to come together to sing, dance, and set our spirits free!”
