The Story of Nina Simone
With her melodic and powerful voice Sabrina Starke creates a certain consciousness and knows how to touch into the heart. Nina Simone is an important inspiration to her. The Jazz Orchetra of the Concertgebouw is a world-class big band. With its strong rhythm section and dito winds they tour all over the globe with all sorts of different programmes and many international soloists.
Due to the ongoing corona crisis, this concert has been rescheduled several times. The new date is Saturday 26 June. Fingers crossed!
I don’t do covers, that's my principle. I prefer to sing and compose my own material, but I’ve always said I’d make an exception when it came to Nina Simone. So when I was asked to do this and I heard it involved working with the Jazz Orchestra, the choice wasn’t a difficult one.
