Storm Large takes over Festival Hall with an eclectic program of punk rock, jazz, and pop for a night of reimagined classics and original compositions backed by a vocal powerhouse. Here is what you should know:
With a career spanning more than three decades, Storm has curated a musical repertoire that defies categorization. She has performed with icons like George Clinton and Rufus Wainwright as well as accompanied classical groups such as the New York Pops and BBC Symphony. She’s no stranger to the spotlight, either. Her appearance on Rock Star: Supernova launched her national career while her more recent appearance on America’s Got Talent compelled viewers to give her their “wildcard” vote, a segment of the competition that featured her as an audience favorite. Her first major release, Le Bonhuer, is a collection of canonical jazz tunes transformed by Large’s personal and contemporary interpretation.
A Little More…
Storm Large shot to national prominence in 2006 as a finalist on the CBS show Rock Star: Supernova, and more recently, Storm appeared on the 2021 season of America’s Got Talent. Storm tours regularly with her band Le Bonheur, and continues to appear with Pink Martini, with whom she made her debut in 2011. Storm has performed with some of the world’s leading orchestras, including the Chicago, San Francisco, National, Detroit, Houston, and BBC Symphonies, and regularly appears at some of the most prestigious venues, from Carnegie Hall to the Kennedy Center to the Hollywood Bowl.
