Details: JUNO Award nominee Fern Lindzon has been praised as “an engaging pianist and singer who brings an unassuming authority, an inquiring spirit and a natural grace to contemporary jazz,” and as “a rare and fascinating talent,” by jazz writers Mark Miller and Irwin Block, respectively. She moves easily between jazz standards, Brazilian melodies, klezmer instrumentals, Yiddish arts songs and her own compositions. Fern’s second CD, Two Kites (2011) was supported by a juried Special Projects award from Toronto Downtown Jazz. Fern has been heard at leading jazz clubs and festivals in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Vancouver and Victoria, at jazz festivals in Ontario. Fern’s directs the jazz choir at Havergal College, teaches piano and has a place on the advisory board of the Jazz Performance and Education Centre.
