Anthem-For-a-New-DayPianist Helen Sung is an artist who was born classical and grew up a jazz player. The Houston born composer, educator and swinging pianist was first introduced to the music in college and once intrigued by its rhythms, harmonies and sense of freedom, she switched her classical major to study jazz. Accepted as part of the first iteration of The Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance, Helen soaked up all of the lessons from Jazz Masters such as Ron Carter, Clark Terry, Jackie McLean, Ray Brown, Jimmy Heath and many others. Her latest record “Anthem For A New Day”, features Reuben Rogers, Obed Calvaire, Ingrid Jensen, Seamus Blake, Regina Carter, John Ellis, Paquito D’Rivera. This InnerView is sponsored in part by the DC Jazz Festival. For more information visit
