Described in a local publication as “smooth, classic, and always engaging “, vocalist Ginny Dusseau began singing professionally at the age of 17. She has performed on television and radio both nationally and internationally and has appeared on six CD’s. From Carnegie Hall in New York to Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow, she has toured throughout America, Europe and parts of Asia sharing the stage with recording artists Tierney Sutton, K.C. Porter, Rachael Price, Dan Seals, and Dash Crofts as a member of the internationally acclaimed Voices of Baha.
Born in Detroit, Ginny came from a musical family. Her mother was a singer and was awarded a vocal scholarship to Julliard. Her grandmother sang with the St. Louis Opera and her brother was a brilliant pianist. As a result, Ginny grew up with a love and appreciation of music, especially singers.
She began classical vocal training at the age of 13 and sang with many different groups throughout her school years. Ginny has enjoyed singing all styles of music including classical, pop and gospel but has focused on jazz and big band over the past 15 years.
“I love interpreting the stories told within the lyrics of the jazz standards,” Ginny says. “I really enjoy the way music and lyrics touches the heart and uplifts the spirit of audiences.”
She is the featured vocalist for both the Truth In Jazz Orchestra and the General Assembly Big Band and has sung with The Dave Collee Quartet for thirteen years. In those roles and others, she has had opportunity to work with most of the best jazz musicians in western Michigan. Her newest CD is entitled “I Thought About You”.
Ginny has an M.A. degree in counseling and has been in private practice for more than twenty years, working with adults and adolescents. She and her husband live in Grand Rapids.
