Words of Bach and Gioia, at St. Paul’s German Church; Helen Sung, Piano

Saturday June 16, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$75

“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.

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!
