An Evening of Jazz & Song with Avi Wisnia
May 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Wissahickon Valley Public Library presents singer, songwriter and musician Avi Wisnia at 7 p.m. Wisnia performs original songs inspired by his love of bossa nova (a fusion of jazz and samba from Brazil), acoustic folk, jazz and modern pop. It’s a dynamic combination of new sounds and a fresh take on some familiar favorites.
Wisnia tours in support of his debut album, Something New, performing in prestigious venues around the world – from the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City to The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., to concerts in Warsaw, Poland and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. His latest single “Sky Blue Sky” was recorded via satellite between Philadelphia and Brazil, winning recognition from the Philadelphia Songwriters Project and MidAtlantic Songwriters Competition.
