The last highlight of this year’s Chelsea Music Festival will be “ The Poetry of Jazz - Helen Sung with Words of Bach and Gioia” on June 16, 2018.

The German Consulate General Recommends:

“What stands out most … is not only Helen Sung’s fluid and imaginative piano playing but her awe-inspiring talent as a truly unique composer and arranger. Her music is adventurous, personal, and a powerful force to be reckoned with in the jazz world.” —International Review of Music

For the Festival Finale, CMF is delighted to present a night with Helen Sung who will not only treat audiences to her original arrangements of Bach, but will also perform Sung with Words, a jazz song cycle created in collaboration with distinguished poet Dana Gioia.

Following the concert, join in for a Curated Finale Reception by Chef Daniela Gutstadt and enjoy a chance to mingle with artists & chefs as they ring out the 2018 Festival!
