Cécile McLorin Salvant, a 2016 Grammy(r) Award winner and the 2010 Thelonious Monk competition winner, was born and raised in Miami, Florida. She started classical piano studies at age 5, and began singing in the Miami Choral Society at age 8. She has developed a curiosity for the history of American music, and the connections between jazz, vaudeville, blues, and folk music. Cécile carefully chooses her repertoire, often unearthing rarely recorded, forgotten songs with strong stories. She will bring the songs from her Grammy(r) Award-winning album FOR ONE TO LOVE to SPAC.
