Virtuoso jazz violinist Regina Carter’s quest for beauty combined with her passion for excellence did not escape the attention of the MacArthur Foundation, which awarded Carter its prestigious fellowship “genius grant.”

The Detroit native will bring her tour program, Simply Ella to Oberlin’s Finney Chapel. The program celebrates the incomparable Ella Fitzgerald, known as the First Lady of Song and the source of Carter’s musical inspiration, an influence she has cherished throughout her life.
