“A captivating jazz singer...”
Jim Dwyer, New York Times
VOCALIST AND EDUCATOR
Singer Jeanne O’Connor can’t be confined to one genre or musical style, although there is a jazzy spirit – and a free-flowing musicality -- in everything she sings. She has brought her swinging, subtle and soulful vocals to stages in New York City, the greater U.S., and Europe. She divides her time between New York City and Saratoga Springs, where she teaches voice. A multi-faceted singer, Jeanne works with a wide variety of jazz and pop ensembles -- as you'll see on this site!
