A feast for the eyes, described as ‘electric’ and ‘a force of nature’, vocalist CHANTAL JOSEPH makes her Allegheny RiverStone Center for the Arts debut in AN EVENING OF SOUL and R&B on Saturday, June 12 at 7:30 PM. ARCA is grateful that generous donors Linda and Michael Bradley have sponsored Chantal’s concert.
Dazzled you will be by her gorgeous voice, musical passion and inner-and-outer beauty, as she performs with her trio musical favorites from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and songs from artists Anita Baker, Roberta Flack, Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway, Aretha Franklin and Nora Jones – plus jazz favorites. This will be a night to remember in Lincoln Hall!
Originally from Cape Cod, Chantal has performed at the Newport Jazz Festival, Indiana Jazz Festival, the Boston Pops, and the Cape Symphony, touring with the Perry Rossi Orchestra. Since moving to Pittsburgh, she is a favorite at The Fairmont Hotel, Eddie V’s, The Brick Shop and Con Alma. Enjoy her Feel Like Making Love With You recorded live at The Fairmont with Daniel May at the keyboard.
CHANTAL is a force of nature. Anyone who has seen her perform will testify to that. They might also use adjectives like ‘high-energy’, ‘electric’ or offer comparisons to Tina Turner and Stephanie Mills.
But to really understand CHANTAL, you’ll have to come see for yourself in Foxburg’s Lincoln Hall. For her, music is a life-long journey in an adventure that has already had her share the studio and stage with the likes of Kenny Loggins, Dwayne Dolphin, Roger Humphries and Grace Kelly.
But now more than ever, CHANTAL is determined to leave her own mark on the music industry. Where others would give in to auto-tuned tracks and fashion trends, CHANTAL’S raw energy and fearless execution cut through the noise with the expressiveness and sensuality of yester year’s greats, but with a 21st Century twist that is necessary to drive the dialogue of today’s society. She’s more than just a feast for your eyes and music to your ears: CHANTAL is an experience, and you’re invited to experience her magic on Saturday, June 12 at 7:30 PM.
