An Evening with Cecile McLorin Salvant:The 62nd Annual Henry and Ruth Blaustein Rosenberg Lecture Performance

The 62nd Henry and Ruth Blaustein Rosenberg Lecture-Performance presents the multiple Grammy Award- winning vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant in concert, followed by an in-depth on- stage interview with WYPR’s Tom Hall. General public, $30, Goucher students, faculty, and staff, free.

CÉCILE MCLORIN SALVANT is a composer, singer, and visual artist. The Late Jessye Norman described Salvant as “a unique voice supported by an intelligence and full-fledged musicality, which light up every note she sings.” Salvant has developed a passion for storytelling and finding the connections between vaudeville, blues, folk traditions from around the world, theater, jazz, and baroque music. Salvant is an eclectic curator, unearthing rarely recorded, forgotten songs with strong narratives, interesting power dynamics, unexpected twists, and humor. Salvant won the Thelonius Monk competition in 2010. She has received Grammy Awards for Best Jazz Vocal Album for three consecutive albums, “The Window,” “Dreams and Daggers,” and “For One To Love,” and was nominated for the award in 2014 for her album “WomanChild.” In 2020, Salvant received the MacArthur fellowship and the Doris Duke Artist Award. “Ghost Song” , Salvant’s debut for Nonesuch Records, was released in March 2022 to critical acclaim, and has gone on to receive two Grammy Nominations.

Established in 1959 with a gift from the Louis and Henrietta Blaustein Foundation Inc., the Rosenberg Foundation honors the late Ruth Blaustein Rosenberg '21 and her late husband, Henry A. Rosenberg. Since 1960, the foundation has enriched the music program at Goucher College by funding the Henry and Ruth Blaustein Rosenberg Lecture-Performance. Each year, income from an endowment provided by the Rosenberg Foundation brings a musical group, performing artist, composer, or musicologist to the campus to present a free lecture and performance. The Rosenberg Foundation recently made an additional contribution to the fund that will continue the lecture-performance series for years to come.
