Emily Bear Is Coming To Clinton, Connecticut!
EMILY BEAR TRIO
SUNDAY, October 18th at 4:00 PM
Morgan School Gagnon Auditorium, Clinton CT
On Sunday, October 18th, The George Flynn Classical Concerts series is proud to present the Emily Bear Trio, performing jazz standards and original works by pianist and composer, Emily Bear. Only 14 years old, Emily Bear is one of the most astonishing musical talents of our time – composing, orchestrating, and performing in a diverse collection of styles. Some of this huge talent is on display on her most recent CD Diversity, produced by Quincy Jones. “With the ability to seamlessly move from classical to jazz and bebop, she shows as much musical prowess as pianists/composers twice her age, and I am thrilled to be working with her,” Quincy says.
Emily has performed at many of the world’s most famous venues including Carnegie Hall, the White House, Lincoln Center, Montreux Jazz Festival, and the Hollywood Bowl, among others. Her sold out concerts have taken her to concert halls across the U. S. and Europe – from palaces in Vienna to stadiums in Japan and Korea. Whether before a crowd of 15,000 at Art On Ice in Zurich or an intimate concert at The Blue Note in NYC – Emily’s rare ability to inhabit a composer’s style or to touch emotions with her original melodies has inspired people worldwide. Quincy Jones says, “She is the complete 360-degree package, and there are no limits to the musical heights she can reach.”
The Sunday, October 18th concert will be held at the Morgan School Gagnon Auditorium in Clinton. Free tickets can be obtained by sending a self-addressed, stamped envelope to George Flynn Classical Concerts, PO Box 473, Clinton, CT 06413 or calling 860-669-1208.
