“A luminous, flutelike soprano…bright tone and improvisational flair.”
– The Washington Post

Sometimes sunshine, sometimes moonlight, Lisanne Lyons’ voice dances through a melody, teasing, inviting you along. A favorite of audiences for years as the featured vocalist for the Air Force Bands, this gifted singer has performed around the world, including a star turn in the national touring company of Cy Coleman’s Tony Award-winning City of Angels. Her solo CD “Smile,” recorded with the John Toomey Trio, drew raves like this one from The Washington Post: “Lisanne Lyons…reminds us of the magic that can happen when the right singer, the right song and the right accompaniment fall into place. Blessed with a luminous, flutelike soprano, Lyons delivers a collection of cheery themes and dreamy ballads particularly well-suited to her bright tone and improvisational flair.” These days Lyons performs and teaches at the Florida International University—but we’ve coaxed her northward to Norfolk, where she’ll bring some of that sunshine to the Attucks Jazz Club!
