Courtyard Series: Berklee at the Regattabar with Nadia Washington
August 15, 2011
Courtyard Series: Berklee at the Regattabar features alumni and student artists performing a variety of jazz styles, including progressive, vocal, improvisational, Latin, and contemporary. The series continues every Monday through August 29. The concerts take place in the Upper Courtyard at the Charles Hotel.
Nadia Washington's singing fuses many different musical styles. Her smooth, velvet-cloaked vocals leave audience members feeling quite misty. Washington, a native of Dallas, Texas, attended Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, where she earned numerous awards before coming to Berklee on the Bill Cosby Presidential Scholarship. While studying at Berklee, Washington made a mark on both coasts, performing with artists including Terri Lyne Carrington, Greg Osby, and Ralph Peterson.
