Willow Chang Sings of Love in Atherton Studio Valentine's Day Concert, February 11

The ancient Greeks classified seven specific kinds of love. In honor of Valentine's Day, Willow Chang has curated an evening of songs she calls "The Seven Faces of Love." She will bring these beloved tunes from theater, pop, jazz, and beyond to HPR's Atherton Studio on Saturday, February 11 at 7:30 p.m. Accompanying her will be Ernie Provencher (bass), Tom Chun (guitar), Thomas Mckay (vibraphone), and other surprise guests.

Tickets are $30 general, $25 for HPR members, and $15 for students with ID; service fees are applied to online orders. The Atherton Studio is located at Hawaiʻi Public Radio, 738 Kaheka Street. Doors open a half hour before the performance. Advance ticket purchase strongly encouraged as the house is frequently sold out before the performance date.

About the artists
Classically trained in voice, Willow Chang is noted for her musicality, bell-like tone, and clarity. She is sophisticated, emotive and expressive, singing not only the lyrics, but also the story each song tells.

Willow’s versatility embraces such genres as Broadway show tunes, jazz, American standards, French melodie, art songs, madrigals, choral works, R&B, funk, world beat, and ’80s pop. Her diversity is evident with the groups for which she’s been the lead vocalist: Swingwood Revue (neo and classic big band), Plush Nugget (funk and R&B), Paradise Sisters and Co. (top 40), and The Hot Club of Hulaville (Gypsy Django Reinhardt jazz).

Willow has been singing for audiences since she was seven and has been studying voice since she was 13. At Sarah Lawrence College, she studied vocal literature, sight singing, composition, and music theory. She graduated from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa with a minor in music.

Inspired by the ideals and values of the Renaissance person, she strives daily to integrate classic and innovative approaches to various disciplines that span performing and applied arts, design, teaching, public speaking, event producing, writing, spiritual insight, and even philosophy.
