Alicia Olatuja

Jazz on Valentine’s Day is a Lane Series tradition, and this year UVM Lane Series are delighted to partner with the Flynn to present two shows at the FlynnSpace featuring the marvelous open heart, powerful voice, and exquisite style of Alicia Olatuja, joined by her masterful band. Some of you may remember Alicia as one of the singers on the Laura Nyro tour with Billy Childs a few seasons ago at the Flynn. Alicia leapt into the national spotlight in 2013 while performing as the featured soloist with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir at President Obama’s Second Inauguration. Since then, she’s performed with her band at Newport Jazz Festival, Monterey Jazz Festival, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Jazz Standard, Montreal Jazz Festival, and the Harlem Stage Gatehouse. Natalie saw her as part of NYC’s Winter Jazzfest at Birdland last year and knew she’d be the perfect performer to set the mood for an unforgettable Valentine’s Day concert.
