ABOUT JOANNA PASCALE:
Lyric is paramount for internationally touring vocalist Joanna Pascale who insists that she cannot perform a song unless she can connect personally with its lyrics. Once she’s found that connection, there’s no one who can better convey the emotion of those words more directly and intimately than Pascale. That gift is in ample evidence on Pascale’s latest release, Wildflower, where she’s joined by an all-star ensemble including pianists Orrin Evans and Cyrus Chestnut, harmonica master Gregroire Maret, bassist Christian McBride, and neo-soul singer Bilal.
The recording of Wildflower coincided with the end of Pascale’s decade-long engagement at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel, which allowed her to hone her voice, style and vast repertoire. A singer of sophisticated taste, profound expressiveness and raw emotion, Pascale is also a gifted educator who is a member of the vocal faculty at the university of Pennsylvania and also teaches in the Creative Music Program at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts.
She’s been featured on recordings by Jeremy Pelt, Tim Warfield, Orrin Evans, Larry McKenna, the Temple University Jazz Band and Garry Dial and Dick Oatts.
Pascale made her recording debut with 2004’s When Lights are Low, followed by the 2008, Through My Eyes and a 2010 duo recording with pianist, Anthony Wonsey released on her Stiletto Records label.
In 2017 she was Artist-in-Residence at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in collaboration with 2015 Guggenheim fellow, Etienne Charles and director, Ellie Heyman to create a song-cycle inspired by flowers

New Feathers Inspires Others to Soar!
We have proudly put a feather in our cap when launching in 2017 New Feathers, a professional reading series devoted to sharing and promoting new work by talented, regional playwrights. New Feathers was one of the original, reading series open to the public in the area to experience fresh, brain-teasing, theatrical work. Thanks to our passion and success, various other new-works, playwriting production groups in the vicinity have been uplifted to present their latest work to the public. Theater-enthusiasts have suddenly noticed, readings have become more mainstream, being enjoyed as a cultural and intellectual night out, and now, all the while professional actors, directors and playwrights alike get paid to present new work, venues meet new faces who get exposed to their unique spaces and almost more importantly, creatives get audience feedback on their work in real-time.
For now, New Feathers evaluating the best direction for the next flight, while enjoying supporting these other new works group’s productions. In the meantime, here’s our end of 2018 show’s “sizzle-reel”, highlighting the New Feathers experience, featuring Ken Kassair’s premiere of Naked Call at the James A. Michener Art Museum.
