More than 20 local businesses and organizations have contributed funds to bring Kathy Kosins, critically and nationally acclaimed jazz vocalist, composer and artist, to Sterling for a concert on Tuesday, March 30, at 7 p.m. in Culbertson Auditorium on the Sterling College campus.
Kosins’ 30-year career has included bookings at the Detroit International Jazz Festival, Tanglewood Music Festival and the Ocean Beach Jazz Festival in San Diego. Herb Wong of the esteemed International Association of Jazz Educators named Kosins as one of the top six vocalists of 2005 and calls her “Outstanding".
