The festival audience is to witness once again the incredible vocal artistry and magnetic onstage persona of the Grammy Award winning Cécile McLorin Salvant, performing her newest release "The Window," with pianist Sullivan Fortner. Exploring and extending the tradition of the piano-vocal duo, they improvise and rhapsodize; playing freely with time, harmony, melody, and phrasing. The repertoire is inspired by the unpredictable nature of love, across a wide variety of songs by Richard Rodgers, Stephen Sondheim, Stevie Wonder, gems of French cabaret, and early rhythm and blues, alongside McLorin Salvant’s brilliant original compositions, adorned with her remarkable vocal technique and her rich interpretations." The McCormack & Yarde Duo featuring Andrew McCormack (piano) and Jason Yarde (saxes) will be opening the show where a cross-genre of world music meets jazz and classical music
