We are thrilled to present this very special 2017 chamber concert showcasing the sensational pianist, singer and composer Clarice Assad, an acclaimed member of Brazil’s legendary musical family. Performing in duet with Grammy Award-winning percussionist Keita Ogawa, Assad plays and sings her vivid pieces, which embrace Brazilian folkloric styles, Western classical forms, French chanson and jazz. Called “a triple threat” by the San Francisco Chronicle and “a dazzling vocal soloist” by the Los Angeles Times, Assad uses her voice freely as an instrument, creating a range of textures and moods that mark her imaginative music. Hailing originally from Nagasaki, Japan, Keita Ogawa is one of the most versatile and sought-after percussionists in New York City.
