Patrice Michaels on Live from WFMT, Monday at 8:00 PM.
“Jazz was my first musical passion, and has remained hugely influential and inspiring for me – a sort of ‘silent partner’ behind my work as a classical singer. I’ve been dipping a toe in from the bridge between the two genres all along. Now my collection of songs, and opportunities to perform with other like-minded musicians, have brought me to the jumping-in point. Sharing this new territory with listeners is an absolutely thrilling opportunity for me.”
Kuang-Hao Huang, piano; Zach Brock, violin; and Nick Photinos, cello, join Cedille Records recording artist Patrice Michaels for a program that explores the synergies between classical and jazz.
