Award-winning vocalist Gabrielle Stravelli has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal following through her original songs and her unique take on material from the new American songbook as well as classic standards by artists as varied as Pink Floyd and Duke Ellington, Dolly Parton and Johnny Mercer.
She has appeared as a soloist with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra, the New Jersey Festival Orchestra and the Cincinnati Pops, and more.
Steve Holden of the New York Times writes: "As she dipped and swooped, twirling notes and phrases with a confidence and playfulness that recalled Ella Fitzgerald in her prime, Ms. Stravelli began interpreting lyrics with a ferocity that her vocal pyrotechnics accentuated..."
Art Topilow, an annual favorite at the Axelrod, has performed with the Cleveland Pops and throughout the world. Noted collaborations include concerts with Christine Ebersole, Bernadette Peters, and jazz legend Dick Hyman.
