One of the most inventive and virtuosic pianists of his generation, New Orleans native pianist Sullivan Fortner came to our attention with his spectacular Grammy Award-winning collaboration with Cecile McLorin Salvant on their CD, The Window. His exclusive DACAMERA virtual recital in 2021 was a revelation, and we now bring him to Houston for his live solo debut. Over two nights, Fortner will share with us his in-the-moment takes on standards and original compositions. Discover the art of improvisation in real time.
