After kicking off a successful inaugural season of Arts on the Green this past summer, vocal powerhouse Lynne Jordan returns to Raue Center as Diva-in-Residence for the 2021-22 season! Audiences were so enamored with Jordan’s sparkling wit and her soaring vocals that dip effortlessly into Blues, Jazz, Funk, Rock, and even Country, that Raue Center has created a new Artist Residency program that will feature her throughout the coming year.
This groundbreaking, year-long residency will allow audiences to explore Jordan’s artistry through a series of five concerts, recorded interviews, talkbacks, and more. “This marks a monumental step for this theatre and its development of artistry,” explained Richard Kuranda, Executive Director of Raue Center. “We’re thrilled to be working with Lynne over the next year as we explore and create new work with this exceptional artist.”
Jordan will perform on October 30 at 8 p.m. in her first concert as Diva-in-Residence. “This program offers me so much, including opportunity and freedom to be truly creative, as well as a safe space to utilize my talents and creativity – my artistic voice – in ways I can only imagine,” said Jordan. “The best part is that I don’t have to imagine it. The opportunity is here!”
Jordan has performed internationally as well; in France in a jazz opera as well tours with her band the Shivers in Brazil, France, Latvia, Ukraine, and Russia. And now she brings her magic to Crystal Lake for a special Halloween show on October 30, 2021, at 8 pm. Her setlist is a tribute to great songstresses like Etta James, Aretha Franklin, and Nina Simone. You’ll hear classics like, ” I Put A Spell On You,” “Sinner Man,” and “The Time Warp” and many others. Don’t miss this Chicagoland treasure light up the stage!
