Rose & the Nightingale is a New York City-based quartet of world-class improvising vocalists and instrumentalists, creating beautiful and unique genre-defying music, full of melody, harmony, and energetic expression. Rose & the Nightingale's current concert, "The Spirit of the Garden," celebrating the sublimity of botanical gardens, blurs the boundaries of world music, folk, and jazz improvisation. The performance integrates poetry about gardens and nature as the lyrics to the songs, as inspiration for improvised interludes, and as thematic threads through the concert. Rose & the Nightingale live performances have proven to uplift audiences with the power of the quartet's fiery rhythmic energy, sublime harmonies, lyrical beauty, and staggering talent. Onstage, the band is a great demonstration of female strength.
Members of Rose & the Nightingale have performed internationally on five continents, at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Radio City Music Hall, the Barbican in London, Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, Chicago Symphony Hall, and at the world's most prestigious jazz festivals including the North Sea, Montreal, Montreux, Newport, San Francisco, and CapeTown South Africa Jazz Festivals, and Tokyo's Blue Note
