10/01/2021 Helen Sung, jazz piano: Quartet+

Buckley, Arms, Amherst College
Friday, Oct 1, 2021 at 8:00 PM (ET)

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 — Helen’s desire to harmonize these worlds with joy and humanity is at the heart of Quartet+, which celebrates women’s artistry and their music.

Quartet+ 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. In a delightful meeting of the minds, Amherst’s own Wisteria Quartet joins Sung’s quartet on stage to bring you Quartet+ .

FREE. General Seating. Due to COVID restrictions, the performance is for on-campus audiences only. Audience must have a valid Amherst College ID to enter.
