An Evening with Patricia Barber

Friday, Apr. 28 | 7:00pm ET (6:00pm CT)


Renowned Chicago jazz singer and pianist Patricia Barber brings her inventive style to Three Oaks for a night of original material from her lengthy songbook, as well as covers of jazz standards. The School of American Music is presenting this concert at The Acorn as a fundraiser for their "Future Fund," their 10-year campaign to build an endowment to secure SAM's future. School of American Music receives matching funds through the Michiana Arts Foundation.

Patricia Barber has earned international acclaim as a dazzling and uncompromising jazz artist. Long known for her sultry vocals, compelling pianism, and sophisticated songwriting, she has come to be regarded as a significant American composer as well–a deeply visionary artist who blurs the lines between poetry, jazz, and art music.
