Manhattan Transfer singer at Tusten Theatre

NARROWSBURG, N.Y. — Laurel Massé brings her effortless style and broad range of musical tastes to the Tusten Theatre at 210 Bridge Street in Narrowbsurg, N.Y. on Saturday, May 15, at 8 p.m.

Very few artists can claim to have started their career in music at the top, but as a founding member of the acclaimed Manhattan Transfer, that is exactly what Laurel Massé did. With her lush, expressive voice, absolute pitch, and flawless diction, the statuesque redhead left her indelible mark on the group.

Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times wrote “How can you not fall in love with someone who brings such life and joy to every note that passes through her lips who transforms even the most familiar songs into stunning new dramatic entities?”

As a studio singer, Massé has appeared on CDs by artists including Tony Trischka, Barry Manilow, and percussionist Layne Redmond.

Tickets are $18 (DVAA members receive a $2 discount on advanced sales) Call the box office at 845-252-7272 or visit www.ArtsAllianceSite.org.

The season continues Saturday, May 29 with stellar string players Tony Trischka (banjo) and Frank Vignola (guitar). The 80-year old art deco-style Tusten Theatre features an eight-month schedule of cultural programming including jazz, opera, performance art, folk music, and theatre.
