This event is part of the Kimmel Center Jazz Residency Program.

Joanna Pascale, Composer & Lyricist

Etienne Charles, Arranger

Ellie Heyman, Director
Project Concept: A song cycle that takes its inspiration from the lives of flowers. Joanna Pascale partners with Etienne Charles to create a song cycle focused on floriorography – “the art of communicating sentiment and emotion through flowers.” Directed by Ellie Heyman, this deeply personal and intimate exploration of a woman’s soul and psyche – as told through the lens of flowers – uses elements of jazz and the Great American songbook to create a “musical bouquet.”

The world premiere is a showcase of the artist's completed project.

Joanna Pascale:

Pascale currently teaches at the University of Pennsylvania and released her most recent album Wildflower in 2015. She joins the program in collaboration with 2015 Guggenheim Fellow and Michigan State University teacher Etienne Charles to create a song cycle that will take its inspiration from the lives of flowers and associated emotions. The project will be under the direction of Ellie Heyman, the Co-Artistic Director of The Orbiting Human Circus, who was part of the 2015-16 Kimmel Center Theater Residency with Joe’s Pub.
