Back by popular demand! The Modernism Museum is pleased to welcome back jazz and blues singer Lauren Mitchell and pianist Bill Buchman. The concert will take place in the Modernism Museum gallery on Saturday, May 4th at 7:00pm. A sparkling and white wine reception is included with your admission, which begins at 6:30pm.
Experience the musical chemistry between Mitchell and Buchman as the duo performs jazz standards, select covers of tunes sung by Etta James, Bettye Lavette, Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin and Betty Davis, along with Mitchell’s own soulful, original material. Her music tells a blues story that has been a lifetime in the making. Mitchell’s powerful vocals and Bill Buchman’s artistry on the piano will make for a memorable evening.
Based in Sarasota, Bill Buchman has toured extensively across the US and Europe and has worked with many jazz legends such as Jo Jones, Bobby Hackett, Red Callender, John LaPorta, Sammy Rimington, and Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis, and many others. Buchman will accompany Mitchell on the Modernism Museum’s Caligari Piano, created by legendary artist Wendell Castle– a very special Steinway for a very special evening!
Tickets are $20 for 3MD members and $30 for nonmembers and includes the wine reception which precedes the performance. Tickets can be purchased at the museum or online by visiting
