Jazz icon Dianne Reeves will be among the star performers at next year’s Bermuda Festival of the Performing Arts.

The Grammy Award-winning American singer will be the featured international artist at the event, which will run from January 17 to March 14.

American a cappella group Naturally 7, Zimbabwean a cappella group Nobuntu and Portuguese fado singer Ana Moura will also perform at the festival.

Bermudian artists scheduled to appear include Joy T. Barnum, Mohawk Radio Unplugged, featuring Mia Chambray and James Gregory, the Tony Bari Trio and John Woolridge.

Romeo and Juliet will be the Bermuda Festival’s Shakespeare on the Rock presentation.

The ballet based on the Shakespeare play will also be performed by Ballet Cymru, from Wales, and feature Bermudian dancer Krystal Lowe in a lead role.

The festival, in its 45th year, will have the theme of “Come Together” and was designed to build bridges in the community through the performing arts.

David Skinner, the festival chairman, said: “We live in a world that can, at times, feel increasingly polarised and the power of the arts to bridge gaps between us is unique.

“The price of admission gets you in the door, the experiences and feelings you take home with you are free. It will be well worth it.”
