15 Nov Dee Dee Bridgewater at Rosey Concert Hall
Grammy and Tony Award-winning Jazz giant Dee Dee Bridgewater took to the stage of Rosey Concert Hall on Monday 12th November 2018 for a showstopping performance of her new album, “Memphis…Yes, I’m Ready.”
Known for her truly groundbreaking re-imagination of American Blues and R&B classics, we were treated to a spectacular evening of faultless vocals, inspiring solos and charming commentary by Bridgewater herself, fluent in French from her years spent in Paris in the 1980s. Infectious grooves and inimitable improvisation brought the audience to their feet, dancing and singing along with Bridgewater as she brought an abundance of Memphis soul to Switzerland.
A unique one-off European appearance for the singer, it was a delight to have her play in the heart of our campus, filling the Concert Hall with electric energy that buzzed through the walls long after the performance had finished.
