Event Details

Alicia Olatuja astounds audiences with her exquisite vocals, artistic versatility and captivating demeanor. She first came into the spotlight in 2013, whilst performing at President Barack Obama’s Second Inauguration. Shortly thereafter, she assembled her own jazz-based ensemble and recorded her first solo album.

Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, Alicia grew up immersed in a wide range of musical styles, including gospel, soul, jazz and classical. These influences have informed her artistic journey and she later graduated with a master’s degree in Classical Voice/Opera from the Manhattan School of Music. After appearing in operatic and musical theater productions she started performing more regularly in gospel and jazz concerts and worked with such esteemed artists as Chaka Khan, BeBe Winans and Christian McBride. 

Her most recent work, Intuition: From the Minds of Women, focuses on the rich contributions of female composers, while offering a musical perspective unique to Olatuja. It features the songs of Brenda Russell, Sade, Tracy Chapman, Kate Bush, Angela Bofill and Linda Creed.

Most (but not all) concert events will have a brief intermission. During this time, the Museum Galleries and Gift Shop will be open for guests to visit.

The Museum does not maintain a wait list for sold out events, and we cannot guarantee that a seat will open up after an event has sold out. We recommend purchasing tickets well in advance to ensure you have a seat for a particular event. Subscribe to our eMail list to stay informed about upcoming concerts!

All ticket sales are final. If you cannot use a ticket for an upcoming event, please consider donating your ticket back to the Museum of Making Music.

Tickets cannot be donated back to the museum after an event has already begun or has passed.

Listening to sounds at an excessive volume over prolonged periods of time can damage hearing. Though the Museum attempts to maintain control over concert volume levels, there are instances when performances can achieve high volume levels. The Museum makes hearing protection available in the form of complimentary foam ear plugs. These can be obtained at any time upon request.
