Anaïs Reno offers Harlem Nocturne (Earle Hagen/Dick Rogers, 1939) to #PerformersSingForFans. Accompanying her are Julie Kurtzman on violin and Pete Malinverni on piano who is the head of the jazz program at Suny Purchase.
Anaïs Reno, a 16 year old drama student at LaGuardia High School, was born in Geneva, Switzerland, and moved to NYC when she was 2. She began singing at an early age, and her love for the American Songbook and jazz became a real passion in her early teen years. Anaïs began performing regularly when she was 10. She performed two of her compositions with the New York Philharmonic, performed several times in Carnegie Hall, at NJPAC, has had several solo shows at Feinstein’s 54 Below, and at Birdland and also a guest with the Birdland Big Band. She debuted at Rose Hall at Lincoln Center last October at the Cabaret Convention. Anaïs has won first place in several competitions over the years.
Anaïs is scheduled for upcoming performances at Feinstein’s 54 Below with Billy Stritch, which will be pushed to a later date, the Birdland Big Band, and the next Cabaret Convention in October.
Anaïs will be giving a live show from her home later this month through the 92nd Street Y, which can be viewed on Facebook, with Tedd Firth on piano. The date will be announced shortly when finalized.
This summer Anaïs will be recording an album with piano, of Duke Ellington/Billy Strayhorn tunes.
