Founder of Celia Slattery Voice and Performance Studio, Celia has over thirty years experience as a singer and performing arts educator. Celia’s original music weaves elements of jazz, pop and folk/rock with perceptive lyrics inspired by artists like Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen. She also covers everyone from Ella to Adele, giving context to the music through humor and stories. Celia released her third CD last year, Our Life Together, a “wonderfully crafted album that’s highlighted by soul-stirring performances both musically and vocally.” (Metronome Magazine).
Mark Shilansky is a multi-talented instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, arranger and producer. Jon Garelick of the Boston Globe called his most recent release, Fugue Mill, “an especially fresh and inventive jazz album.” Mark is in demand as an accompanist for singers including grammy award-winning Luciana Souza, Rebecca Parris, Kim Nazarian (New York Voices) and the jazz vocal group Syncopation.
