The new season begins with the HELEN SUNG QUARTET – ANTHEM FOR A NEW DAY (Sept. 5 & 6, 2015)
An award-winning classical pianist before jazz intervened, Houston, TX, native Helen Sung went

Kennedy Center’s Mary Lou Williams Jazz Piano Competition. Since establishing herself in New York City, she has worked with such luminaries as Clark Terry, Ron Carter, Steve Turre, the legendary Wayne Shorter, and MacArthur Fellow Regina Carter; and, in addition to her own band, can currently be seen with fine ensembles including the Mingus Big Band & Dynasty Band, the T.S.Monk Group, and Terri Lyne Carrington’s Grammywinning Mosaic Project. With five first-rate albums to her credit, Sung’s next recording, Anthem For A New Day, is her debut on Concord Records. An exciting step forward in Sung’s evolution, Anthem displays a modern artistry and music that swings with a funky intellect while seamlessly integrating her jazz & classical worlds.
