Nora York Tribute Concert

Nora York Tribute Concert

Joe's Pub
October 7, 2019

“I first met Nora in 2002,” explains Nora York’s longtime collaborator Jamie Lawrence. “She was ready to put out a new album, and she thought I was the person to produce it, although we had never properly met. We hit it off and worked together on many projects and a lot of special music, until she tragically passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2016.

Nora York was an adventurous jazz singer and performance artist whose genre-crossing work defies easy categorization. Her concert work Power/Play was commissioned by the Brooklyn Academy of Music and performedat the 2006 Whitney Museum of American Art Biennial. York has headlined at the Newport Jazz Festival, Ottawa Jazz Festival, JVC Jazz Festival, New Sounds Live at Merkin Hall, and Lincoln Center Out of Doors, for which she received a “Meet the Composer” grant. In 2013, she received a Robert Rauschenberg Foundation grant to compose and perform a song cycle as part of Marfa Dialogues/NY, an interdisciplinary citywide series on Climate Change. She won the Franklin Furnace “Future of the Present” grant for her collaboration with artist Nancy Spero and her piece “Bad News!” was presented at the 2013 River to River Festival New York.

“Nora York was an absolutely unique artist, one whose commitment to experimentation was matched with a voice of unworldly beauty. She was a great singer, a great artist, and a luminous human being.” – Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director of The Public Theater
