Hiromi Performance At The Annenberg Center Is Postponed
The performance by jazz pianist Hiromi, originally scheduled for April 11, 2019 at the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, has been postponed until October 12, 2019. Due to pregnancy and her doctor's advice, Hiromi has canceled all upcoming performances.
In a statement Hiromi says "I am sorry to cause any inconvenience for the upcoming US/EU tour. I love performing more than anything and hate postponing shows. Your support means so much to me and I don't want to disrespect It, but at same time the situation doesn't allow me to fly and perform everyday like I used to and I would like to be at my best to be able to share the special musical moments with my audience. Thank you so much and I really appreciate your understanding."
Already-purchased tickets will automatically be transferred to the October date and new tickets will be mailed to ticketholders in the coming weeks. Questions may be directed to the Annenberg Center Box Office at 215.898.3900.
Pianist/composer Hiromi electrifies audiences and critics east and west, with a creative energy that encompasses and eclipses the boundaries of jazz, classical and pop parameters, taking improvisation and composition to new heights of complexity and sophistication. Her latest CD, Spark, her tenth as a leader, features her critically acclaimed Trio Project, consisting of contrabass guitarist Anthony Jackson (Steely Dan, Paul Simon, Michel Camilo, The O'Jays and Chick Corea) and drummer Simon Phillips (Toto, The Who, Judas Priest, David Gilmour and Jack Bruce). Hiromi's first release, Another Mind was a critical success in North America and Japan and received the Recording Industry Association of Japan's (RIAJ) Jazz Album of the Year Award. Her second release, Brain, won the Horizon Award at the 2004 Surround Music Awards, Swing Journal's New Star Award, Jazz Life's Gold Album, HMV Japan's Best Japanese Jazz Album, and the Japan Music Pen Club's Japanese Artist Award (the JMPC is a classical/jazz journalists club). In 2006, Hiromi won Best Jazz Act at the Boston Music Awards and the Guinness Jazz Festival's Rising Star Award, and was named Jazzman of the Year and Pianist of the Year in Swing Journal's Reader's Poll for her 2006 release, Spiral. Hiromi was born in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka, Japan, where she started piano lessons, performed her first recital, and began writing music, all at the age of six. She moved to the United States in 1999 to attend the Berklee College of Music.
