Description: The 4th Annual Village Jazz Alive event, hosted by the Greenwich Village-Chelsea Chamber of Commerce (GVCCC), will be held on May 20th, 2013 at DROM in the East Village. The event celebrates the enduring music culture of New York City and honors the outstanding musicians who have helped to create and sustain it. This years’ event celebrates vocalist and jazz prodigy Cyrille Aimee. Cyrille has won many awards such as the Montreux Jazz Festival Competition in 2007, the International Theleonious Monk Competition in 2010, and the International Sarah Vaughan Competition in 2012. "[Cyrille's] voice is like fine whiskey – oaky and smooth, with a hint of smokiness,” as described by The Washington Post. Her vocals are featured in the award-winning French documentary “Kings of Pastry." In a much cherished encounter with Bobby McFerrin, Cyrille is inspired to develop her loop-pedal solo performance. General Admission ($50) includes 2-hour open bar in addition to the show. Enter promotional code "student" to receive a 40% discount (only valid with student ID at the door). All proceeds return to the GVCCC, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating new opportunities for art & culture in NYC.
