Perkins School for the Blind is proud to present award-winning American composer and acclaimed pianist Lisa K. Hilton as she performs new compositions from her latest release, entitled OASIS – which is defined as: Something serving as a refuge or relief. Hilton’s expressive and impressionistic compositions explore the soundscape of jazz and blues alongside classical and modernist ideas fueled by the inspiration from past composers Count Basie, Horace Silver, George Gershwin, Robert Johnson as well as Rachmaninoff. Hilton has performed at venues across the US from the legendary Carnegie Hall to the historic Green Mill in Chicago and is known for her warmth and storytelling on stage, as well as her expressive technique at the piano. “One of the finest composers working in Jazz today” -Jazz Notes.
