Milman has performed around the globe in the last year, hitting landmark venues like the Hollywood Bowl, the Kennedy Center and New York's Blue Note club, sharing stages with the likes of Chick Corea, Chris Botti and the Manhattan Transfer. Her second album, "Make Someone Happy," won the Juno Award for Jazz Vocal Album of the Year after it topped the iTunes jazz chart in the United States and Canada for months, and cracked the top five on Billboard's jazz chart.

NPR's "Weekend Edition" praised the Canadian singer's "classic jazz voice that evokes smoky lounges, softly clinking glasses and the cool of the night." "JazzTimes" referred to her as Canada's hottest young jazz singer, and "DownBeat" simply said "she captivates." The Los Angeles Times raved, "the sky's the limit for this exceptional young talent."

Sophie Milman at Miller Auditorium is part of the Soptlight Series and is sponsored by Coca-Cola. Tickets are on sale now for $33.
