Winner of the Great American Jazz Piano Competition, New York City based musician Deanna Witkowski has been heralded for her “consistently thrilling” playing and her “boundless imagination” (All Music Guide). Her five albums include Raindrop: Improvisations with Chopin, a solo piano session that seamlessly combines jazz, classical, and Brazilian music; and the liturgical jazz release, From This Place, with music ranging from three-part women’s a cappella to SATB pieces with instrumental jazz trio. This summer she will release Makes the Heart to Sing, a trio recording featuring fourteen of her jazz hymn arrangements.
On July 9, Ms. Witkowski will join our parish singers at 11:00 a.m. mass, to lead our community in prayer with her compositions and virtuoso piano-playing. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to make a joyful noise to the Lord!
