About

Acclaimed pianist/composer Helen Sung presents Quartet+, her latest project and upcoming release on Sunnyside Records (September 2021). Having lived much of her life at the intersection of different worlds—classical and jazz, and as the American-born daughter of Chinese immigrants—Sung’s desire to harmonize these worlds with joy and humanity is at the heart of Quartet+, which celebrates women’s artistry. Recorded by her quartet with special guest Harlem Quartet, it vividly blends the colors and textures of the jazz and classical worlds, taking the listener on a ride through musical time and space with new original compositions and arrangements of works by landmark women including Geri Allen, Mary Lou Williams, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Carla Bley, and Marian McPartland.

This event is FREE with RSVP required to attend in person.
