    Kat Parra will present a combination of Sephardic music and her varied Latin Jazz repertoire. In addition to singing fluently in English, Spanish and Portuguese, Parra has the rare ability to sing in the dying language of Ladino, or Judeo-Espanyol, which enables her to interpret Sephardic music (Music of the Spanish Jews) faithfully. Kat says,"Ladino (Judeo-Espanyol) is an antiquated form of Castilian that also includes words from Hebrew, Arabic, Turkish and many other languages. It is an amalgamation of the Sephardic Diaspora, and it is my small way of helping to preserve this language." Since quitting her corporate job nine years ago to pursue a full-time career in music, Kat Parra has released four critically acclaimed CDs, with her fifth due to be released this Spring. She has been invited to perform in Amsterdam, Brazil and Mexico as well as top-tier venues throughout the United States, earned the designation "Best Latin Jazz Vocalist of 2010 and 2008" by Latin Jazz Corner, and received a 2008 nomination for "Latin Jazz Album of the Year" from the Jazz Journalists Association. Kat strives to erase boundaries by presenting new musical works integrating Sephardic music with different, yet related, genres of music, such as music of Cuba, Perú, Argentina, Spain and the Middle East. For this concert, Kat will be joined by her pianist and musical director, Murray Low and her woodwinds player, Masaru Koga.
