Dianne Reeves Appointed LA Philharmonic Creative Chair For Jazz

Jazz singer Dianne Reeves has been appointed to the newly created two-year post of creative chair for jazz by the Los Angeles Philharmonic. According to Philharmonic Executive Vice President/Managing Director Deborah Borda, reports the Los Angeles Times, Reeves is the first in what the orchestra hopes will be a series of jazz artists who will serve as "visiting professors" for two-year periods, to advise the orchestra on jazz programming; Reeves' programming input will be heard during the 2003 season.

This season however, she will join Oleta Adams and Tom Wopat, accompanied by the Terence Blanchard Quintet, in a salute to Billie Holiday, in the Wednesday Jazz at the Bowl series on July 17.
