Never bound by constraints of genre or style, Jenn Beaupre’s natural ability to discern and reinterpret the underlying truth of a song was discovered at an early age. Now pair that uncommon ability with a technical agility most singers only dream about. “My job is not to be a ‘singer’ – I want to make you feel things. I’m an evoker – an elicitor of emotion.” She’s been racking up accolades and captivating audiences for years, but her most recent hit single, “Giants” revealed her absolutely electrifying pop prowess to a larger audience than ever before and now she’s here to Ignite your spirit at Cocktails and Connect.
Now in its 34rd year, DJD has carved a niche for itself as one of our nation’s most unique dance companies, devoted to the rich history and spirit of jazz.
