A naturally gifted singer noted for her commanding stage presence and profound artistry, Jennifer Johnson Cano has garnered critical acclaim for her performances of both new and traditional repertoire. Together with a chamber ensemble consisting of piano, strings and flute, she performs a program featuring American works, including Paul Moravec’s new vocal chamber piece, A New Country, commissioned by the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival to celebrate its 35th anniversary theme, Destination America. This five-movement piece showcases texts by Emma Lazarus, Walt Whitman, and Anna Vacek.
