CJC Creative Jazz Club Aotearoa & Auckland Fringe are pleased to present Simona Minns in a special one-off concert.

Simona Minns is a Lithuanian born jazz vocalist, composer and artistic director based in Boston, MA and will be presenting a selection of her jazz arrangements and original compositions.

Her style is known for its unique theatrical flavor, genre-bending, and virtuosic vocal scat improvisation. Her latest work, “A Hunger Artist," blends her haunting vocals with elements of Lithuanian folk, vaudeville and even rock music to convey the narrative of Franz Kafka's short story by the same title.

Classically trained on Lithuanian zither, Simona earned her BA in jazz vocals at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theater. Shortly after receiving the European Touring Scholarship, she moved to the United States to study at Berklee College of Music where she majored in Contemporary Composition and Production. She received the Berklee Outstanding Jazz Vocalist Award and regularly performs and presents workshops in the US and Europe.
