FESTIVA presents the Deanna Witkowski Jazz Trio
February 24 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
bossa-nova beat? Composer, singer, and pianist, Deanna Witkowski, brings her jazz trio for an afternoon of worship in a new style.
The winner of the 2002 Great American Jazz Piano Competition, Witkowski has released six critically hailed albums over the past two decades, with each new project revealing a steadily evolving sensibility marked by melodic invention and emotional connection.
As part of this program, two of Ms. Witkowski’s pieces commissioned by Festiva will be premiered for our audience. One selection, “His Eye Is on the Sparrow,” was written specifically for Palmetto Girls Sing! (under the direction of Amy Fennell). Come hear beloved hymns in a fresh, stylistic approach.
