Street Scenes: Nicole Saphos, Bassist/Vocalist
Thursday, November 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Hill Center is proud to introduce a new concert series, Street Scenes – a series focusing on new music composed by emerging DC jazz artists, curated by Burnett Thompson.
Nicole Saphos has performed at such venerated venues as The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Strathmore Mansion and The Kimmel Center. Since 2012 she has led her own trio, which has coalesced around drummer Ele Rubenstein and guitarist John Lee. Saphos recently released her debut album, Tiptoe, a collection of imaginatively arranged standards and originals organized around a journey of personal revelation.
“Saphos has an impressive rapport with her trio and a creative attitude towards her music that leads her to create a uniquely hazy and funky ambiance.” –All About Jazz
Doors open at 6:30pm. Join us for a post-concert wine reception with the artist.
