DEBORRAH WYNDHAM in concert * Foundry Hall
As seen on ABC Chicago, FOX and NBC, contemporary pianist/composer Deborrah Wyndham has given over 3,000 performances nation-wide. With this history and the recent release of her first CD recording of all original instrumental piano music entitled The Beginning, she has established herself as one of the most accomplished and inventive composers on the piano music scene today. Her original works reflect a unique, contemporary style all her own that lies in the realm somewhere between classical and jazz. (www.deborrahwyndham.com)
Along with dozens of past TV and radio appearances, performances and interviews, Deborrah Wyndham has also performed in many large concert halls and theatres, colleges and universities, performing arts centers, museums, libraries, festivals, schools, night clubs, private residences and more. In concert Deborrah performs many of her original pieces as well as traditional jazz styles like ragtime, boogie woogie and her stride-inspired arrangements of up-tempo standards as well as classically-inspired, virtuosic and oftentimes polyrhythmic interpretations of jazz ballads. With an ever explorative and diverse musical spirit and background, in addition to being a concert pianist, Deborrah has performed on many stages as a singer-songwriter & guitarist as well, having begun her musical career in that capacity. Seeing a need for more appreciation of instrumental music in general, she has focused on the piano all these years with thousands of hours honing her craft and fostering a deep understanding of her first instrument. Early on she was awarded an Honorable Mention from Billboard Magazine for one of her original songs. In 2008 she was featured in Mirror Magazine and in the same year held the #2 place for several months for highest rating out of 32,000 artists on CNET.
With virtuosity and an unparalleled elegance rarely seen today by young artists, many frequently ask if Deborrah is a graduate of Juillard or Berklee, though she studied piano only in her youth for five years beginning at age eight. Within two years she was performing difficult ragtime pieces. Later on she discovered jazz from fellow musicians, playing covers for many years. Then one day, she began composing original music unlike anything she had played before, with a strikingly distinct sound of hints of jazz colors merged with classical refinement. Weaving seamlessly in and out of the two styles with mesmerizing and refreshingly unexpected musical turns and textures, Deborrah Wyndham opens a new world of timeless, hauntingly beautiful music.
