We are pleased to welcome New York City-based jazz pianist/composer Deanna Witkowski and her trio during the 10:45am worship service this Sunday, January 29.
Ms. Witkowski is the winner of the 2002 Great American Jazz Piano Competition, has been a guest on Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz, and has been interviewed twice on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday. Known for her fusions of jazz, Brazilian, and Afro-Cuban music, she has been lauded as “one of the best of the new generation of jazz pianists” (Jazz Journal International) and praised for her “consistently thrilling” playing (All Music Guide). This spring she will release her fifth recording, a solo piano project featuring jazz and Brazilian arrangements of Chopin preludes and nocturnes. Her earlier recordings, including her most recent sacred jazz release, From This Place, will be available for purchase in the Dickinson Room.
Please help spread the word about this sacred jazz celebration and consider inviting a friend to worship with you.
