Description

Two-time Grammy nominee, Monica Mancini, has carved out an impressive career as a concert performer appearing with major orchestras world-wide and recording with an array of artists from Placido Domingo to Quincy Jones. As the daughter of famed film composer Henry Mancini and the singer Ginny Mancini, Monica has undoubtedly inherited the musical genes: her warm, dusky tone and remarkable vocal range have been described by The New York Times as “the glamorous vocal equivalent to diamonds flashing.” Recognized for her exquisite renditions of her father’s film music from the 50s and 60s, including such classics as “Moon River” and “The Days of Wine and Roses,” Mancini and her band come to Royce Hall with a program of American classics.
