Lara Downes and the Musical Art Quintet

Join us on Thursday, April 2 at 8pm for a special night of live music by Lara Downes and the Musical Art Quintet, celebrating Downes’ chart-topping new album A Billie Holiday Songbook.

Featuring the music of Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, and the Billie Holiday Songbook.

Lara Downes has garnered wide acclaim as one of the most exciting and communicative pianists of today’s generation, lauded by NPR as “a delightful artist with a unique blend of musicianship and showmanship” and praised by the Washington Post for her stunning performances “rendered with drama and nuance”. Lara’s innovative explorations of the piano repertoire – from iconic favorites to newly commissioned works – bridge musical genres, traditions and audiences. Read more about Lara here.

The Musical Art Quintet is Sacha Jacobsen on bass, Jory Fankuchen on violin, Anthony Blea on violin, Lewis Patzner on cello, and Charith Premawardhana on viola. Read more about them here.
