Jacqueline Schwab- Vintage Songs of Immigrant America



On July 29, we are honored to bring pianist Jacqueline Schwab to our “Blind” Boone Piano Concert Series. Her playing infuses the soundtracks of eleven Ken Burns’ mini-series including Grammy-winning Civil War, Baseball, Lewis and Clark, among many others. She has performed at the White House for President Clinton, on public radio’s A Prairie Home Companion, and On CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman. Her Blind Boone Piano program will be based on the American immigrant experience and will include tunes from some of her Ken Burns films. Jacqueline is thrilled to be playing Boone’s piano and this will be her first visit to Columbia. Tickets are $25.
