This March marks my first tour of California, a period that, in this part of the world… could possibly be perceived as early spring! (Growing up in Canada, this is admittedly hard to grasp.) I’m excited to make music with, for, and to teach an entirely new cast of characters in such a spectacularly beautiful location…

I’ll be joined by the intensely musical, poetry savvy southern California based pianist and composer Jeremy Siskind!

We’ll be premiering new material from my sparkly mastered as- yet- unreleased third CD, “The One and the Other”, along with songs from my sophomore album “Whose Shadow?” (2014, Inner Circle Music) plus some interesting interpretations of standards and non standards.

The Bay Area

March 8‒ Red Poppy Art House, San Francisco

Our tour begins with a duo performance at San Francisco’s Red Poppy Art House. Seating is limited in this very cool listening room! Please visit redpoppyarthouse.org for advanced ticket sales and other details

March 9, Master Class‒The California Jazz Conservatory, Berkeley

I’ll be giving a vocal master class at The California Jazz Conservatory that is open for public registration, on a dense subject that I have obviously spent a considerable amount of time pondering and negotiating: Making the Leap From Classical to Jazz Singing is geared primarily for the experienced classically trained vocalist who has made the bold decision to cross over to the dark side. This class will offer a lot of technical information about technique, along with exercises for phrasing, swing and improvisation and finally ways to learn to hear yourself objectively in order to self- regulate your practice regime. For more information and registration please visit:

March 11‒ Performance and Master Class, Saddleback College, Mission Viejo

Jeremy and I then drive down the coast to Mission Viejo South of Los Angeles, for a performance and master class for students in the voice program at Saddleback College. The concert at The McKinney Theatre is open to the public. For tickets and details, please visit https://www.saddleback.edu/news/arts/Lara-Solnicki-Jazz-Vocalist.

March 14‒ The Blue Guitar Room, Arroyo Seco Golf Course, South Pasadena

Next, we will be joined by excellent Los Angeles bassist Henry Beal for a trio jazz show at The Blue Guitar Room. Please visit The Blue Guitar Room for all information.

Our tour ends with two House Concert in San Diego that are open to the public.
