Mary-Catherine Quartet

December 13, 2019 @ 8:30 pm – 11:30 pm

“Mary-Catherine Pazzano shines throughout with energy and luscious tone, as she soars with her quartet. Mary-Catherine possesses a gorgeous, classically trained contralto voice capable of projecting the full gamut of emotions, as well as an uncanny skill with rendering the lyrics of current music, jazz standards and show tunes.”

–Lesley Mitchell-Clarke, The WholeNote Magazine (December 2017 Issue), reviewing album “You’re Gonna Hear From Me”

Described as a performer who “has her audience enthralled throughout the entire show” (Thornbury Paper), a musician who sings as if she is “reciting poetry” (Meaford Express), and “a talented jazz and ballad singer with an attractive voice and subtle improvising style” (Scott Yanow), Mary-Catherine Pazzano is a jazz vocalist based in Kitchener, Ontario. Mary-Catherine’s performance highlights include: Birdland (New York City), Uptown Waterloo Jazz Festival, The Rex (Toronto), Jazz Bistro (Toronto), The Jazz Room (Waterloo), and The Registry Theatre (Kitchener). She has also toured New Zealand as a lead vocalist, and has been a soloist with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony. Mary-Catherine has shared the stage with jazz notables Mark Eisenman and Pat Collins, as well as the world-class chamber ensemble Penderecki String Quartet.
