Since emerging onto Philadelphia’s jazz scene, Pascale has established herself as a compelling and skilled vocalist. “Joanna is a highly sophisticated singer,” claims Philadelphia Metro.
She has a working repertoire of over four hundred songs and has appeared and recorded with jazz giants such as trumpeter and Director of Jazz Studies at Temple University, Terell Stafford; sax pyrotechnic and critic’s rave, Tim Warfield; legendary drummer, Mickey Roker, piano virtuoso, Cyrus Chestnut and others. She performs three nights a week with her quintet at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia. In August 2006, she was selected for the Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour roster.
On top of a busy performing and recording schedule, the Temple alum is also a member of the vocal faculty at Temple University. She teaches private voice and ensemble lessons, as well as conducts performance practices and workshops.
