Nancy Davis Booth
Nancy Davis Booth has had one of the most versatile careers on the scene today. In her 38th summer with the Tucson Pops, Tucson audiences may best remember her as the naughty Belle Starr in Old Tucson’s “Diamond Studs,” her hilarious one-woman show with the Tucson Symphony or her many fund raising concerts for Tucson charities. Locally, she has appeared with the Arizona Theatre Company, The Tucson Symphony, the Arizona Opera, Invisible Theatre, Arizona Repertory Theater and the Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus.
Her singing career has taken her all over the world with acclaimed performances in concert, opera, oratorio, cabaret, musical theater and pops. She has appeared as a guest artist with the St. Louis Symphony, Detroit Symphony, Louisville Orchestra, Rochester Philharmonic, Colorado Symphony, Nashville Symphony, Illinois Symphony, Virginia Symphony, Tucson and San Antonio Symphonies, Las Vegas Philharmonic, the Ft. Wayne and Greenville (SC) Symphonies and The Lake Placid Sinfonietta. Summer festivals have included The Redlands Bowl, The Oregon Britt Festival, Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival and the Breckenridge (CO) Music Festival with the National Repertory Orchestra. Her Vienna Nights with Detroit Symphony was broadcast on National Public Radio with Dick Cavett hosting. She was the featured guest at the 4th of July Anniversary Celebration Tribute to President Ford, has sung at the White House, Annapolis Chapel and Arlington Cemetery and with such notables as Sammy Davis, Jr., Mark Russell, Michael Feinstein, Steve Ross, and Ann Hampton Callaway. Internationally, Nancy performed concerts of American music at The St. Petersburg Conservatory, Glasunov Hall and the Royal Philharmonic Hall in St. Petersburg, Russia. Nancy and guitarist/composer Brad Richter toured Mexico, culminating in an appearance at the Alfonso Ortiz Tirado Music Festival in Alamos, Sonora.
