Lina Orfanos

Acclaimed international vocalist and recording artist Lina Orfanos is a mezzo-soprano who sings in popular, classical, jazz, and world musical styles. She has a lush voice with faultless intonation and great rhythmic footing. Lina is immersed in the sonorous cultures of the United States, Latin America, and the Mediterranean. Singing in English, French, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, and Spanish comes easily to her. Whether performing an old Greek folk lament, paying tribute to Ella Fitzgerald’s version of “Night and Day,” or inspiring a young composer to set Spanish poems to music for her, Lina proves that songbirds can soar. The Muse whispered into Lina’s ear when she was a small girl on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera with the Children’s Chorus

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
