On Thursday, May 3 at 7:00 pm, the Nashville Jazz Workshop presents the next installment in the Cabaret at the Workshop Series. This performance features vocalist Robert Whorton, accompanied by pianist Lori Mechem in “STRAYHORN, BERNSTEIN, SONDHEIM…enough said.” The show is about their music, their motivations, their mentors, their mystique and the common thread their talents shared. These American composers/lyricist pushed the boundaries of jazz, musical theater and popular music. This special evening is packed with great music you will love experiencing in the intimate cabaret space at the Jazz Cave.

Robert moved to Nashville in 2014 from Chicago, where he performed at Davenport's, Maxim's, Chicago Cultural Center, The Storefront Theater, Gentry of Chicago and Drury Lane Water Tower. In addition to cabaret shows in New York and Greece, he has co-starred with renowned songwriter David Friedman in the Midwest premier of the off-Broadway success of Listen to My Heart: the Music of David Friedman.

Acclaimed for giving songs a “new emotional life,” Robert Whorton has been recognized as one of Chicago’s premier male vocalists. He began singing in clubs on the exotic island of Mykonos, Greece in 1992 and it changed everything he knew about the intimacy of music. Returning to Chicago, his show, Because of You: a Tribute to Tony Bennett, was praised by the Chicago Tribune for holding his own with the songs of Mr. Bennett. From his success as a performer at the Chicago Cabaret Convention in 2006, he was asked to be a featured performer at the New York Cabaret Convention later that year marking his debut at Jazz at Lincoln Center. During his twenty years in Chicago, Robert performed at many clubs and theaters as well as worked with many accomplished musicians.

Since moving back to Nashville in 2014,he has found a musical home at Nashville Jazz Workshop both as student and performer. About this relationship Robert says, «I am looking forward in continuing to study and share my take on classic American music no matter the genre. I know there is a home in this city for me to make that happen and I can't wait to welcome you there.»

The performance will consist of one extended set beginning at 7:00 pm in the Jazz Cave at the Nashville Jazz Workshop. Tickets will go on sale Monday, April 23 at 10:00 am, and are $25 ($15 for high school and college students). Advance purchase is strongly recommended:
