Joan Collaso, an accomplished vocal artist, is an Emmy award winner and international vocalist. She is well known in Chicago for her performances, recordings and sold out productions, as well as her work with young aspiring artists through her not-for-profit, Timeless Gifts Youth Program for the Performing Arts. Ms. Collaso has received many accolades and awards for her work, including the Elkhart Jazz Festival’s Jean and Van Young Lifetime of Achievement Award!
