Svetlana is a vocalist (from Russia), songwriter and arranger living in New York City with the sound that has at once tenderness, warmth, soulfulness and vulnerability, as well as an unexpected edge and power of a seasoned vocalist. Svetlana earned a MA from the Manhattan School of Music (2015) where she studied vocal performance with Theo Bleckmen, Gretchen Parlato, and Kate McGherry – and composition with James McNealy and Phill Markowitz. Since then, Svetlana has been collecting accolades from local, national and international press. Since forming in the spring of 2012, Svetlana & The Delancey Five have gone on to consistently selling out at a number of renowned New York jazz venues including the Blue Note, B.B. King’s, Ginny’s Supper Club, Zinc Bar, City Winery, and Kitano. The band has also become one of the most in-demand features at the numerous sold out hot jazz and swing events.
Small tables, candle light, and the smooth sounds of jazz create the perfect atmosphere for one of The Arts Council’s most loved series, Evenings of Intimate Jazz™. From standards, swing, blues, and soul, Evenings of Intimate Jazz brings the vibe of Bourbon Street and the intimacy of Chicago’s jazz clubs right here to downtown Gainesville.

Table for 6 $125
