Composer, Jazz Vocalist, Actress, Painter and Educator, Carmen Lundy will make a special visit to Mount Vernon on Wednesday, August 1st. We are so fortunate to present Ms. Lundy, as part of her summer tour that includes the Playboy Jazz Festival in June and the esteemed Festival International de Jazz de Montreal in July. Lundy grew up in Miami, Florida where she attended University of Miami as an Opera major. She quickly found her talent in Jazz and graduated with a degree in Studio Music and Jazz Performance. She has written more than 60 compositions and has performed with many greats in the business including Kenny Barron, Ray Barretto, Bruce Hornsby, as well as brother and bassist, Curtis Lundy. As an actress, Carmen had the leading role as Billie Holiday in an off Broadway play and in the leading role in the Broadway production of Duke Ellington's Sophisticated Ladies. Carmen is celebrating her 12th recording release, Changes. She will be joined at Mount Vernon by her recording and touring quartet of stellar musicians, pianist, Anthony Wonsey, bassist, Kenny Davis and drummer, Jamison Ross. In her "spare" time, Lundy teaches Master Classes throughout the world and is also an accomplished painter in oils on canvas. Her works have been displayed in New York and Los Angeles, where she currently resides. Don't miss this rare opportunity to experience this exceptional artist.
