Award-winning New York City based pianist & composer extraordinaire brings red hot trio to Akron in her return appearance to BLU! Featuring Boris Kozlov, Rudy Royston.

With a band that includes some of the finest artists of this generation, pianist Helen Sung is poised to take her place as one of the preeminent voices on today’s jazz scene. Her music has been called “soulful”, “smart”, punctuated by irresistible grooves: this is high art overflowing with a warm humanity that is both thrilling and unforgettable.

A native of Houston, Texas, and graduate of its renowned High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, Sung was an award-winning classical pianist before “a Tommy Flanagan solo changed everything”. She went on to graduate from the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance: an intensive program accepting only seven students, it was an unprece dented opportunity to study with some of the greatest masters of jazz music. Highlights of the two-year program include performing at the Kennedy Center and touring India and Thailand with Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter.

Now based in New York City, Sung won the 2007
