For December, WBE welcomes Sumi Tonooka, Jazz Pianist and Composer. An unexpected move from New York to Seattle prompted a new direction in Sumi’s career: symphonic composing. With clear intentions and a willingness to take risks, Sumi explored opportunities to thrive in a fresh creative space, and her musical repertoire took on a new, vibrant pitch.
Join us as Sumi talks about taking ourselves to the edge—even over it, sometimes—and how, in that space, we find our greatest opportunities. As a holiday gift, we might hear her play!
