Helen Sung Presents: On Tap with Michela Marino Lerman + Sung With Words
Pianist/Composer Helen Sung brings an all-star band to Tilles Center to present a program showcasing her brand new release, Sung With Words, her first recording to feature original vocal compositions which use the poems of Dana Gioia (California’s current State Poet Laureate and former National Endowment for the Arts Chairman) as lyrics. Featured on NPR’s “First Listen” program, Sung With Words draws on jazz and poetry to create a powerful multi-movement work, bringing the musical and literary worlds together in thrilling fashion. Sung will open the evening with her newest project:On Tap with Michela Marino Lerman. Fresh off a “killer set” (Downbeat Magazine) at the 2018 Newport Jazz Festival, Sung and Lerman will duo their way through the American songbook, setting the stage for an electrifying evening of song, music, and dance.
