Known from her time as a finalist on the CBS show “Rock Star: Supernova,” songstress Storm Large will join the Jacksonville Symphony in concert March 2-3 to perform classic romantic favorites, including “My Funny Valentine” and “Hopelessly Devoted to You.”
As a musician, actor, playwright and author, Large has played many artistic roles. Before rising to national prominence in 2006 with her appearance on “Rock Star: Supernova,” Large spent the ‘90s singing in clubs throughout San Francisco. In 2002, she started a standing engagement at Dante’s, a club in Portland, Oregon.
Large made her debut with the band Pink Martini in 2011 singing four sold-out concerts with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Although she continues to perform with Pink Martini off the orchestral stage, her symphonic performances have continued. Recent highlights include performances with the New York Pops, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and the Louisville Orchestra. Recently, Large joined Michael Feinstein as a special guest on the “Jazz at Lincoln Center Popular Song” series with Liza Minnelli, Joel Grey and Pasadena Pops.
During the symphony’s two “Crazy Arc of Love” concerts, Large will perform love songs new and old on the Jacoby Symphony Hall stage. Classic jazz standard “My Funny Valentine” can be found on over 1,300 albums, including one by Frank Sinatra. The crooner’s “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” will also be performed, along with Queen’s “Somebody to Love.”
To be performed at the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts in Jacksonville, the concerts will take place Friday, March 2 at 11 a.m. and 8 p.m., as well as Saturday, March 3 at 8 p.m. The 11 a.m. concert on Friday will be part of the Raymond James Coffee Series and will feature abbreviated selections. Complimentary coffee and cookies will be served before the coffee concert.
