Katherine Byrnes and Angelo Versace are two of Tucson’s jazz luminaries joining together for an unforgettable night of music.

Her projects have taken her as far as China with Art.if.act Dance Project, across Europe with Blue Note recording artist Amos Lee, and throughout the United States with her original band, Sweet Ghosts. In 2018, Katherine released an album of duets with pianist Jeff Haskell. She is joined by accomplished pianist, Angelo Versace, the University of Arizona Director of Jazz Studies. Versace has been described as “a fleet-fingered keyboard dynamo” (Lawrence Budman) and “next star on the jazz scene” (Dwayne Dolphin).
