About the Artists
Vocal Soloist Mary Wojciechowski
Mary Wojciechowski's love of jazz began as child watching black and white musicals with her grandmother. Hearing Fred Astaire sing such songs as "The Way You Look Tonight" and "Night and Day" started a love affair with 1930s and 40s jazz that continues to this day. Her singing reflects the elegance of 1930s and 1940s jazz.
 
It was clear when Mary began singing even before she could talk that she would inevitably choose Vocal Performance as her college major. She earned a Bachelor's degree in Music with a concentration in Vocal Performance from Nazareth College and a Master's degree in Music from Temple University in Philadelphia. She has studied voice with Barbara Staropoli and Lawrence Indik.
 
Mary has sung with the Gateswingers Big Band and the Rochester Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra alongside such musicians as Buddy Colinari, Dave Mancini, Tony Ferra, Tim Sullivan, Ron Bowks, and Aaron Hughes. She has performed at such venues as Rochester’s Downstairs Cabaret Theater, Wegman's Concert Series at the Charlotte Gazebo, the Burgundy Basin Inn, the Stardust Ballroom, and Legacy at the Fairways Concert Series.
 
On the stage, Mary has performed such roles as Adele is Die Fledermaus, Sister Angelica in Sister Angelica, and the Countess in The Marriage Of Figaro. She has also performed such musical roles as June in Gypsy, Cinderella in Into the Woods, Lily in The Secret Garden and Rosa Bud in The Mystery of Edwin Drood. She also sang with the Philadelphia Pops Festival Chorus under the baton of Peter Nero.
 
She continues to expand her repertoire and share her love of music.
