Nadine Chase

Nadine Chase grew up in Brooklyn, New York emulating the rich background of big band music, Broadway show tunes and, of course, street corner harmonies. Nadine was on-the-road with a Top 40 show band for a few years which contributed to her musical education. She then made her home in Boston and with affiliation to the Berklee College of Music, truly developed her jazz acumen. Acknowledged as vocally versatile, reviewers say she "sings jazz standards the way they ought to be sung." Over the years, she has performed with many renown musicians and big band orchestras.  Having lived in Boston for many years, Nadine has produced shows at The Regattabar, Scullers and Ryles Jazz Club. Nadine and her ensemble have performed at major fundraisers, in concert for Music America at the Museum of our National Heritage and an inaugural celebration at Boston’s State House. She has been booked throughout New England, New York, Las Vegas and has been invited to perform in Mexico, Japan and China.

Nadine moved to the Shenandoah Valley in 2007 and has performed at well known venues such as The Mill Street Grill, South River Grill, The Natural Bridge, Stone Soup Books & Cafe, Boar's Head and at private functions (i.e. CrossKey Vineyards), including events and fundraisers for the University of Virginia. She has also had the opportunity to sing with “Sentimental Journey” and “Just Jazzin” big band orchestras and performed with the accompaniment of some of the area's stellar jazz musicians, Vince Lewis, Lew Morrison and SPLAAAT, Bob Bowen, Phil Riddle, Tom Harbeck, Liz Barnes, Tim Weir, Steve Abshire, Paul Langosh, Steve Hobbs, to name a few. In June, Nadine's jazz ensemble performed at the Shenandoah Valley Wine & Jazz Festival in Staunton.

Nadine is a voting member of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences and is a member of the Jazz Vocal Coalition, The NE Jazz Alliance, the Boston Jazz Collective, Staunton Music Guild and the Charlottesville Jazz Society.

She remains active in specific groups (i.e., Institute of Noetic Sciences, and the Society for Organizational Learning) about "creativity in business" and assisting individuals to help "find their voice."
