SANGEETA KAUR JOINS “FRONT AND CENTER” THIS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 19
Featuring Special Guests Jon Anderson and Jake Shimabukuro
Acclaimed Concert Series Returns to Public Television for 10th Season
LOS ANGELES, Calif. – As the 10th season of the critically acclaimed live music series “Front And Center” concludes, New Age vocalist Sangeeta Kaur joins from Los Angeles for a special performance premiering this Sunday, September 19.
While traveling the world as an operatic vocalist, Kaur was introduced to the power of spiritual mantra as well as the discipline of yogic practices that have influenced her musical expression. Her performance for “Front And Center” showcases her innovation and creativity, merging classical and contemporary music approaches for a performance enhanced by gorgeous visuals, graphics and costuming.
The concert features a guest appearance by Jon Anderson of YES on the world premiere of his song “Sun and Rain” as well as world-class ukulele player Jake Shimabukuro and world class backing musicians who have worked with Wings, Jimmy Buffett and more icons of the industry. The set includes Sangeeta’s original composition “In All of Time” and a stunning rendition of “Les Feuilles Mortes,” set in a virtual magical forest.
“I am excited and honored to share my music on Season 10 of Front and Center!” shares Kaur. “I believe that there are many layers and frequencies in every song. I often remind myself that I have the power to choose the frequency my music will broadcast into this world. So, I hope that my show will promote love, healing, and positivity for those who watch and listen, because right now our world needs so much of this.”
“Thanks to Sangeeta for closing out season 10 for us,” shares Executive Producer Don Maggi. “Her performance and the special appearances from Jon Anderson and Jake Shimabukuro really make it a special conclusion for a fantastic season.”
Due out September 17, just days before the television special begins airing nationwide, Kaur’s new single, “In All of Time,” is stunning proof that the classical crossover/New Age star is transcending all musical boundaries. Kaur, who produced the luminous track along with renowned virtuoso pianist Van Anh Nguyen and celebrated producer/DJ Mark Olsen, has created a timeless, universal love song, one that could be applied to both a beloved human partner and a higher being. Steeped in passion, the song envelopes listeners with its sweeping mix of classical pop, modern electronics, and a widescreen cinematic spirituality, and through it all there is Kaur’s magical voice flooding the senses and enriching the soul.

About Sangeeta Kaur
Throughout her body of work, Sangeeta – an incandescent performer and multimedia artist whose dramatic vocal range renders listeners in a state of blissful awe – has brought disparate worlds together and has transformed them into something astonishingly unique. Often called a “classical crossover” star, she fuses her background in opera, sacred mantra and yoga with a taste for contemporary pop and a keen narrative sense, resulting in a sound experience that is thrillingly unique and profoundly inspirational. Through a series of award-winning albums – Ascension, Mirrors, Compassion, and last year’s stunning release Illuminance – Sangeeta followed her own muse and bridged genres: thrilling operatic arias, rousing musical theater, enveloping New Age soundscapes, sacred mantra sung in multiple languages, even elements of children’s music and contemporary pop. Sangeeta has collaborated with Peter Kater, Jon Anderson, Narada Michael Walden, Jake Shimabukuro, and will be touring in the coming months in support of her upcoming television special and new music.
