Artist / Program Description:
Roberta Miles is a romantic who sings jazz. As she interprets standards and ballads by such great American composers as Gershwin, Porter, Rodgers, and Arlen, she creates a soulful, sultry atmosphere. Her goal is to use the lyrics to speak both to you and with you, to soothe and sometimes taunt. Ms. Miles’ hope is that these musical masterpieces will bring a touch of beauty and perfection to a world that is all too often unkind. As another expression of her musical goals, she is a founding member of Chicago Cabaret Professionals.
General concert programs include jazz standards and ballads and can be tailored to highlight the music of a specific composer or a desired theme.
