St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church presents a solo performance by Sullivan Fortner, the second installment of “The Future of Jazz Piano,” a series curated for the church by acclaimed pianist Fred Hersch. Fortner’s program will include selections from his new release “Moments Preserved,” as well as select standards and originals.

Lauded as one of the top jazz pianists of his generation, Sullivan Fortner is recognized for his virtuosic technique and captivating performances. The winner of three prestigious awards—a Leonore Annenberg Arts Fellowship, the 2015 Cole Porter Fellowship from the American Pianists Association, and the 2016 Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists—Sullivan’s music embodies the essence of the blues and jazz as he connects music of all eras and genres through his improvisation.
