Saturday June 29, 2019 – 8:00 PM: Benefit concert featuring our guest artist OLETA ADAMS who has inspired a growing legion of fans in the U.S. and Europe with journeys of the heart via songs that draw deeply from her roots in gospel, while crossing effortlessly into the realms of soul, R&B, urban, and popular music. Her success, nurtured by worldwide tours with Tears for Fears, Phil Collins, Michael Bolton, and Luther Vandross, has been solidified by four Grammy nominations and a seemingly bottomless well of creative energy. Also featured on the program is a special tribute to great jazz pianists by David Benoit and the Asia America
Youth Symphony Orchestra.
