Friday Evening, January 28th at 7 PM:
“Jacqueline Schwab In Concert”

From the soundtracks of Ken Burns’ Grammy award-winning Civil WarBaseballMark Twain and many other PBS documentaries to the White House to the (recent) PBS American Roots special with the American Pops Orchestra, pianist Jacqueline Schwab is known for evoking the American musical past, but in a fresh, personal way. Her playing infuses the oft-aired soundtracks of Ken Burns’ films, including his Grammy-winning Civil War, Baseball, Lewis and Clark, Mark Twain, The War and The National Parks, as well as the PBS documentary The Irish in America and others. She has performed at the White House for President Clinton, and she has accompanied Scottish singer Jean Redpath on public radio’s A Prairie Home Companion and on CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman. She has performed vintage American music on the solo concert stage in almost every state of the Union. In concert, Jacqueline often performs familiar old tunes, what Mark Twain would have called “remembrancers,” but with her own stamp, and she speaks about the power of music to transport us into our own past and on to new horizons. Her newest solo recording, scheduled for 2022, is I Lift My Lamp—Illuminations on Immigrant America.

Jacqueline is looking forward to sharing her solo piano music with Community Church’s community and beyond! On Friday, Jan. 28, she will perform The Passionate Pen—Protest Songs-without-Words. She will include lesser- and well-known pieces from Scotland, the US, Canada, Cuba, Chile, Greece and beyond, reflecting on freedom, peace and social justice.
