World renowned vo­cal­ist/gui­tarist Phyl­lis Chap­pell will bring an in­ter­na­tional reper­toire of mu­sic to the Ham­burg Strand Theater on Nov. 18.

Chap­pell has spent her life de­vel­op­ing a uni­ver­sal mu­si­cal style, singing “world songs” in 13 lan­guages from Brazil, Latin Amer­ica, Eu­rope, Africa and the Mid­dle East, as well as Amer­i­can folk, jazz, and pop­u­lar mu­sic. She also has a reper­toire of award win­ning orig­i­nal songs.

Per­form­ing in con­cert at the Carnegie Hall in New York City, The Kim­mel Cen­ter for the Per­form­ing Arts in Philadel­phia, and countless other venues and fes­ti­vals through­out the coun­try, she has gained no­to­ri­ety for her tal­ents. She has also per­formed in Brazil, Latin Amer­ica and Eu­rope.

Chapell has been named one of the top jazz vo­cal­ists of all time by Scott Yanow (Down Beat, Jazz Times, and Al­lMu­sicGuide). She has also won song com­pe­ti­tions for her orig­i­nal mu­sic and was cho­sen to be one of Indie-Mu­sic’s Top 25. To hear a sampling of Chapell’s mu­sic, visit www. phyl­lis­chapell.com.
