Jasmine and Joey in Italia: Songs and Improvisations of Rossini, Handel, Mozart
The Jasmine Wilson and Joey Chang (Chez Cherie) in February 2021 presented Italian-inspired songs and free (jazz/R&B) improvisations. Our spontaneity-loving and improvisation-based duo takes a spin through some of opera's classic arias by Mozart and Handel, a song cycle by Rossini, and all glued together by some of our own extemporaneous musical commentaries.
