Vocalist Lauren Vilmain is a graduate of Drake University. She majored in vocal performance with a minor in musical theatre under guidance of Professor Leanne Freeman-Miller. In her studies she fell in love with both the thrill of live performance and the beauty of self-expression. She has worked as a vocalist locally at StageWest Theatre Company and internationally in Viterbo, Italy. While being classically trained, Lauren also dove into musical theater repertoire. After her studies she found a challenging and deep love for American Jazz music. She performs locally with NOLA Jazz Band as well as her Duo/Trio/Quartet. She is proud to work with some of the best musicians in the Des Moines area and to collaborate with them for her personal projects.
In addition to our live audience performance in Noce Jazz & Cabaret, this show will be streamed live via Facebook and Youtube beginning at 8PM on the night of the show.
