A Benefit Concert for the Alumnae of Color Scholarship
Join alumnae and friends for a dynamic concert by internationally renowned jazz vocalist Nicolas Bearde. Before the concert, attendees can take part in a wine pull and a silent auction.
This event is sponsored by the Alumnae Association of Mills College Alumnae of Color Committee and the Mills College Office of Alumnae Relations. All proceeds benefit the Alumnae of Color Scholarship in honor of President Alecia A. DeCoudreaux.
From the artist's website:
"Internationally renowned vocalist Nicolas Bearde is a jazz singer of remarkable depth, range and technique who has won acclaim from critics and jazz audiences worldwide for his 'buttery baritone' and deeply imaginative interpretations.
"A seasoned showman on stage, Bearde's brilliant and lush vocals combine passion, wit and sensuality, with an engaging rapport that captures and draws the audience into his performance. Forged from his Nashville roots and his 1980's initiation into the thriving San Francisco music scene, Nicolas' unique approach and electrifying delivery of his originals, time-tested standards, blues and other familiar jazz works, are soulful, swinging, improvisational and memorable."
