Samara Joy takes the Samueli Theater stage on October 1

Joy will grace the Samueli Theater stage this Saturday, Oct. 1. With a voice as smooth as velvet, Joy seems to rise with each performance. At only 21 years old, she has already performed in many of the great jazz venues in New York City, including Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola, The Blue Note and Mezzrow, in addition to working with jazz greats such as Christian McBride, Pasquale Grasso, Jon Faddis, Kirk Lightsey, Cyrus Chestnut and NEA Jazz Master Dr. Barry Harris. Joy makes her debut at the Center and looks forward to sharing her passionate love for jazz as a uniting force and as a catalyst for change in the years to come.
