Jazz phenom Cécile McLorin Salvant returns to Walt Disney Concert Hall with her most ambitious project yet, combining jazz and bluegrass in the poignant fairytale Ogresse, a wickedly delicious work about a human-eating monster who lives in the woods.

A clear departure from her beloved interpretations of standards, this program has very real implications for life in America in the 21st century, told from the distinct perspective of a young black woman. Don’t miss this revelatory – and all-too-timely – masterwork.

The Power to the People Festival is generously supported in part by Margaret Morgan and Wesley Phoa, GRoW @ Annenberg, the Frank Gehry Fund for Creativity, and by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
