The show choir has toured to NYC and participated in Disney’s Broadway Musical Theatre workshop and also participated in an international choral festival taking first place.

Ms. Curran is a 2012 graduate of Sandwich High School who earned a Cape and State reputation as a superb vocalist performing with the swing band Stage Door Canteen and various other groups while still in High School along with competing as a vocalist throughout High School. Her versatility spans jazz, funk, pop, and rock. She studied jazz, voice, and performance at the University of Northern Texas before continuing her studies at Kungl, Musikhogskoln in Stockholm Sweden. Currently based in Stockholm, Jessica not only sings jazz standards from the American Songbook, but arranges for a multitude of colorful instrumentation and is being commissioned for her writing ability. Most notably, Jessica had the opportunity to musically interpret the Nobel Prize in Economics for Stockholm’s Nobel Museum in 2016. She has just launched her premiere album of original songs, “Here,” which she has also arranged. Jessica is a true musical collaborator performing with musicians in Europe and beginning this month appearing in various locations in the USA. Her first Album has been very well received.
From “Sounds So Beautiful” – “Blends of jazz, Latin Dance, Soul and Funk, the album is thriving. You can feel the thrill and her cheerful personality in tracks like Grounded, catchy with the rhythmics, and feel as well the fears and anxieties in songs like Night Visions. Rich is the instrumentation with the strings and percussion. As if her lead vocals weren’t enough, the presence of the violin emphasizes the idea of lightness and weightlessness. Inspired by any shape or form of art (dancing, painting,…) she put out an enjoyable and beautiful piece of work, pure result of creativity.”
The Sandwich Town Hall Preservation Trust and Theatre of Sandwich are so happy to bring Jessica to the Glass Town Stage in her home town. Tickets are selling already. Jessica’s amazing voice and musical art is something rare and beautiful. Please plan to attend.
