Award-winning vocalist and songwriter Gabrielle Stravelli will be performing a special evening concert on Saturday, Oct. 13 at Temple Beth-El of Great Neck as part of the synagogue’s year-long 90th anniversary celebration. She will be joined by her renowned jazz trio, and by Temple Beth-El’s cantor, Vladimir Lapin.

The concert will showcase some of the greatest musical hits of the last 90 years celebrating the musical innovation of Great Neck’s first synagogue.

Gabrielle Stravelli has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal following through her rich sound, original compositions and her unique take on material from the Great American Songbook as well as by contemporary artists. A trained actress, The New York Times noted that Stravelli’s “emotional intelligence coincides with a phenomenal voice that she wielded with an easygoing confidence and impeccable taste.”

In 2017, Stravelli released her third album, “Dream Ago,” comprised primarily of original material co-written with bassist Pat O’Leary and lyricist Jason Robinson. The album received a five-star review from DownBeat Magazine and garnered raves from the Huffington Post, Scott Yanow of LA Jazz Scene and Tony Frankel of LA’s Stage and Cinema among others.

Stravelli began singing at age 15 as a soloist with the Orchestra of St. Peter by the Sea in New Jersey and has since performed on stages from Amsterdam to New York. She has been featured at the Caramoor Festival, Jazz at Chautauqua, Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night’s Swing, Birdland Jazz Club, 92Y’s Lyrics and Lyricists Series, Cornelia Street Cafe, 54 Below, Merkin Hall at Kaufman Center, the Iridium Jazz Club, and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) where she opened for Esperanza Spalding and Cassandra Wilson. She sings with a “forceful emotional presence and a versatile, well-shaded voice,” says Adam Feldman of Time Out New York, and Peter Haas of Cabaret Scenes describes her voice as “clear and clean, expressive, supple, with unforced power.”
