Dawn Clement presents her take on beloved classics made famous by the legendary Judy Garland. Selections from The Wizard of Oz and Garland’s famous concert Live at Carnegie Hall will be at the forefront of this musical appreciation. Clement is joined by a stellar cast of characters with Ryan Leppich on drums, William Kuepper on bass, and the lovely Emily Hale on vocals.
Pianist/vocalist/composer Dawn Clement has established herself as one of the most sought-after musicians working today. With her joyful presence, consummate technique, and distinctive sound, Clement has gained the attention and respect of musicians, critics and fans throughout the US and abroad. “In all this world of jazz, there are very few individual voices, no matter what the instrument, but Dawn has come up with a voice that’s unique,” says legendary jazz trombonist Julian Priester.
Clement recently re-located from the Pacific Northwest to Denver to take on the new role of Assistant Professor and Area Coordinator of the Jazz and American Music Department at Metropolitan State University of Denver. She holds a Bachelor of Music degree from Cornish College of the Arts and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Music Composition from Vermont College of the Arts.
