We are excited to report that jazz cabaret vocalist Kitt Moran and her band are scheduled to perform for us on Thursday, August 4th at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium.
This is Kitt’s first time performing here and we’re thrilled to welcome her to the Bay Village stage. Although she embraces a variety of musical styles, Kitt Moran followed a fairly standard course getting her to where she is today. She is from New Jersey and got her start at age 10 performing professionally in children’s roles in operas such as “Carmen” and “La Boheme” which she sang in French. She attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York, where she studied music and acting.
She settled in Atlantic City in 1994, where she was hired by Merv Griffin himself to become the first and only “chanteuse-in-residence” at his flagship casino gourmet restaurant. Even when the resort was purchased by Sun International, and began making sweeping changes throughout the property, they decided not to “fix what wasn’t broken” and extended Kitt’s contract.
Moran also sang in many of the most popular night clubs in Manhattan and has opened for Jay Leno, Rodney Dangerfield and Jackie Mason. She also has extensive recordings, some of which will be available for purchase following the concert. To hear some samples of Kitt’s mesmerizing voice, check out her website at www.kittmoran.com. See you at the concert!!
