Composers include Bill Evans, Michel Camilo, Michel Legrand, and Miles Davis.

“Throughout, her work was marked by a fiercely intelligent approach to lyrics coupled with an impressive clarity… She is a performer who has to perform first-rate material because anything less would be exposed with her honesty.” – Cabaret Scenes
“Corsaro has this raspy, sexy, woman’s voice in her lower register and a more legit sound on top, but it’s a voice filled with what feels like knowledge of the places she puts herself in emotionally.” – Cabaret Hotspot
Maria Corsaro recently completed a successful run of her show, You Taught My Heart To Sing, with the Gregory Toroian Trio and directed by Sue Matsuki, at Pangea. The show, which is jazz inspired, consists of songs where lyrics were added to instrumental compositions – sometimes years later. A second show with this concept is planned for Fall 2023.
