The Westport Arts Center is excited to close its 2017-18 Concert Series with a unique program by Simon Mulligan with the Simon Mulligan Trio on Friday, May 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Arts Center. Acclaimed British pianist Simon Mulligan has been described by The Times of London as “the most abundantly gifted of pianists” and by Herbie Hancock as “phenomenal.”

Mulligan is also known for his collaborations with many notable artists. He has performed for President Barack Obama, Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family, and has collaborated with Dame Shirley Bassey, Branford Marsalis, Liza Minnelli, Van Morrison, and Sting. The Simon Mulligan Trio includes Gene Perla on double bass and Alan Korzin on drums.

For this performance, Mulligan with the Simon Mulligan Trio will perform a program that traverses the worlds of Jazz and Classical music with selections from Mozart, Debussy and Chopin as well as a unique interpretation of the George Gershwin Songbook.

The concert will take place in the context of the visually stunning Handmade: Women Reshaping Contemporary Art exhibition at the Westport Arts Center, featuring the works of over 15 female artists with a focus on fiber and textile arts. Artists of note include Lesley Dill, Faith Ringgold, Miriam Schapiro, Judith Scott, and Beverly Semmes. Watch a video of Simon Mulligan performing!
