“New York pianist and Festival Artist in Residence, Helen Sung opens the 2018 Festival in a concert with the ten-piece powerhouse, the Sydney Women’s Jazz Collective. Identified by Wynton Marsalis as an artist to watch, Helen Sung seamlessly integrates the jazz and classical worlds. This concert features a performance of the new work by trans artist Harri Harding, the 2018 Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival APRA Composer Commission winner”
“Sung’s lyricism, light touch, and classical polish … complemented by plenty of hard-chord muscle”. – The Guardian
