Why you should see this show…

Olivia Van Goor’s silky smooth vocals with the power of the Hudson Jazz Band behind her will transport you to a 1930s jazz club. Not just a jazz composer, Olivia is also an educator of her craft. Each and every performance exemplifies a rich understanding and musicality that is uniquely her own while still paying tribute to jazz tradition and the ones who created it. Olivia will be backed by William Bennet on keys, Samuel Chase Harris on bass, and Dave Zwolinski on drums
 

Olivia Van Goor Bio
Olivia is a young performer with an old soul influenced by swing and bebop jazz from the mid-20th century. Music is undeniably a part of her identity, her voice being the instrument she communicates with. She draws from the Great American Songbook and other jazz standards in a way that is beyond replicating what has already been done before. Each and every performance and recording exemplifies a rich understanding and musicality that is uniquely her own while still paying tribute to jazz tradition and the ones who created it.

Olivia moved to Southeast Michigan in the winter of 2017 with her family, and fell in love with the Detroit music scene. She has performed at historic Detroit clubs such as Cliff Bell’s and Aretha’s Jazz Cafe at Music Hall, along with the Blue Llama Jazz Club in Ann Arbor. Rich with history and phenomenal world-class musicians, she has found a home where she continues to progress her craft with musician and educator Scott Gwinnell.

Raised in Hudson, OH, Olivia learned how to play piano, sing in choirs, and eventually how to perform as a soloist. The love for music grew as she explored different avenues: choir, rock bands, and musical theatre. However, one outlet stood out against them all: jazz. In 2019, Olivia graduated from Denison University in Granville, OH with a bachelor’s degree in music & economics. She used that time to explore voice as her main instrument, learning from Dr. Stephanie Henkle and Dr. Carolyn Redman. She sang in the jazz ensembles under the instruction of saxophonist Pete Mills, and interned at Jazz Arts Group Columbus.
