Gershwin Songbook with Sonja Gustafson

London’s award-winning Jazz songstress Sonja Gustafson has a traditional approach bringing a cool verve to classic and lesser-known standards. Sonja is dazzling whether performing passionate ballads, scatting with abandon, or crooning popular covers. Her collaborations with many of London’s top jazz instrumentalists led to the release of her self-titled debut CD in 2007, as well as a double Christmas CD in 2010. Sonja is also an accomplished classical soprano with a Master’s of Music from the University of Western Ontario. She is a popular guest with symphonies, choirs and big bands and has been soprano soloist at First St. Andrew’s United Church in London, ON since 1999.

Whether singing in an intimate jazz club or in front of a symphony, this multi-faceted performer is an engaging songstress who connects deeply with her audience and shares her love of song with passion.
