MSUFCU JAZZ ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
Helen Sung will perform with the MSU Jazz Octets as part of the MSU Federal Credit Union Jazz Artist in Residence series.
Based in New York City, Sung has worked with a “Who’s Who” of jazz, including the late Clark Terry, Ron Carter, Wayne Shorter, Wynton Marsalis, and MacArthur Fellow Regina Carter. She has recorded five albums as a leader, and her sixth release For a New Day (Concord Jazz) topped jazz radio charts. Sung has appeared at major U.S. festivals and venues including Newport, Monterey, Detroit, SFJAZZ, and Carnegie Hall, and is gaining prominence on international stages. An active composer, she has received several commissions and grants, including a 2014 Chamber Music America/Doris Duke Foundation New Jazz Works grant.
