Award winning vocalist of TINA HAASE FINDLEY will be our guest artist for SPECTRUM our upcoming collaboration with Grandview University's Theatre Department.
We are excited to have TINA as part of SPECTRUM, a series of 10-minute plays with other performances.
Gateway Dance Theatre will be producing two of the plays as part of this production, a dance excerpt from the dance suite “Water is Life”, and guest artist jazz vocalist Des Moines Hall of Fame musician Tina Haase Findley.
TINA has made her mark throughout the jazz realm as well as in blues, rock, soul, gospel, commercial jingles, and musical theatre. This includes countless big band and combo settings.
Most recently, her much-lauded Queens of Jazz tribute shows at Noce Jazz Club in downtown Des Moines have cemented her place as one of the scene’s most sought-after vocalists.
A two-time Iowa Blues Challenge winner, Tina is currently the youngest member (and one of the few women) of the Des Moines Jazz Hall of Fame.
