Marina Albero is the featured performer at the next First Sunday Concert in October.
Albero was the recipient of the Golden Ear Award as Emerging Artist 2018, and she burst onto the Seattle jazz scene in September 2014.
Since that time, she has energized the scene with her quartet, and in duo and solo piano performance. Her style reflects her musical journey that began with touring the world as a child with her musical family, to her teen years spent studying in Cuba, to her association with flamenco forms in Spain. Concert organizers say the listener can hear a world of music in her playing, from jazz, to classical, to flamenco, and undeniably, the Afro-Cuban rhythms that are so foundational in jazz music.
The concert is 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6 at Waterfront Park Community Center. Albero will be joined by the acclaimed trombonist and unique composer Naomi Siegel.
Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets or at the door. For more information, visit www.firstsundaysconcerts.org.
