The nearly 10-year-old collaboration of international vocalist Shiri Zorn and guitarist George Muscatello never fails to amaze and delight audiences. The pair “turn standard jazz repertoire on its head.”

Great American Songbook classics take on Middle Eastern influences and unusual time signatures, while Latin tunes and sambas are improvised with new harmonies. Zorn discovered her singing talent as a young child in Israel and later trained at the famed Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London before arriving in the United States in 2007.

Well known for his extraordinary guitar playing and improvisation skills, Muscatello has been a mainstay on the local jazz scene for 25 years. An adjunct lecturer at Skidmore College, he also hosts master classes bringing world-renowned jazz musicians to the Saratoga Springs campus.
