Description

The Poetry of Jazz— Helen Sung with Words of Bach and Gioia

8 PM | St. Paul's German Church

What stands out most … is not only Helen Sung’s fluid and imaginative piano playing but her awe-inspiring talent as a truly unique composer and arranger. Her music is adventurous, personal, and a powerful force to be reckoned with in the jazz world.” —International Review of Music

For our Festival Finale, we are delighted to present a night with Helen Sung who will not only treat audiences to her original arrangements of Bach, but will also perform Sung with Words, a jazz song cycle created in collaboration with distinguished poet Dana Gioia.

Click here for a video of Helen discussing this exciting new collaborative project.

Following the concert, join us for a Curated Finale Reception by Chef Daniela Gutstadt and enjoy a chance to mingle with artists & chefs as we ring out the 2018 Festival!
