A shooting star in the Jazz world, Horn spent the last few years picking up Jazz vocalist awards left, right, and centre, including top place in the vaunted Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Competition. Critics praise her thrilling sense of presence and deft balance between mid-century jazz and contemporary neo-soul.

Maybe you picked up her Grammy-nominated 2018 album A Social Call, or caught her fluid vocals and sensational scat-singing at the 60th Grammy Award Ceremony – or maybe you’ll be hearing her for the first time when she performs at the Jack Singer Concert Hall, in which case, lucky you.

"Without a doubt among the jazz world’s most exciting young vocalists… her sound is explosive and bright and rich, catnip for audiences looking for boldness that’s still traditional." - Billboard

Named after Mr. Jack Singer ($1.5M contribution from his sons, Alan and Stephen Singer), the concert hall is also the home of the Carthy Organ donated by the Carthy Foundation in the amount of $750,000 in memory of Mrs. Margaret Mannix. Suspended high above the stage is a laminated, 185,000-pound (90-ton) spruce-wood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.

Over its 32 year life, Jack Singer Concert Hall has undergone many upgrades to ensure that it remains a state-of-the-art performance hall, including a new million dollar sound system with state-of-the-art hearing assistance in 2004, a complete replacement of all its analog sound boards in 2014, and the future replacement of all of its seats to be completed by fall 2017.
