“Aisha de Haas… A Powerhouse of talent” – Chicago Theater Review
On November 13, Aisha De Haas joins Gulf Coast Symphony for the Great Ladies of Jazz. Born into a musical family in New York City, music soon brought the family to Chicago where, at the age of 8, Aisha began singing with the world renowned Chicago Children’s Choir. She then studied bel canto singing with acclaimed voice teacher Lena McLin who ensured her students had a strong foundation while singing a variety of styles.
Graduating from Columbia College Chicago where she was mentored by Sheldon Patinkin, Aisha’s professional career began with Little Shop Of Horrors at the Royal George Theater, Four Saints In Three Acts with Chicago Opera Theater and several productions at The Goodman Theater. She returned to New York in 1997 and in 1998 did her first Broadway show – Bring In Da Noise, Bring In Da Funk with Savion Glover, followed by RENT and Caroline, Or Change.
