Maria Corsaro's love of music and performing began early in her life. She received her first undergraduate degree in theater and after graduation joined an off Broadway theater company. Then, after years in a rewarding, but non musical career, returned to singing and has performed in various venues in New York and Connecticut. Her recent focus has been returning to her love of jazz and the music of legendary jazz composers and lyricists. This is the music of her heart. She wants her audience to experience the emotional texture of this great American art form. She feels passionately that music feeds the soul and is the creative result of musical collaboration.
Corsaro has this raspy, sexy, woman’s voice in her lower register and a more legit sound on top but it’s a voice filled with what feels like knowledge of the places she puts herself in emotionally.
