Performing with Present Music…

Truly psyched to perform with the fabulous ensemble Present Music during my artist residency in Milwaukee…


Fantastic review of “In The Avant Garden of Love” in Shepherd Express!

‘Present Music’s Magical Surrealism’ – Shepherd Express

“Most of the second half of the concert was devoted to the attractive, arty jazz of Swedish composer and singer Sophie Dunér. Her voice spanned well more than two octaves as she freely spun out Something to Say, Rain in Spain, Red Sailor Girl and The Express Train. I loved her edgy scat singing in Hey Doctor, in which a frenzied woman asks the physician for a remedy of love. It was fitting that the concert ended with a lovely jazz ballad, with Dunér and the ensemble performing Ornette Coleman’s What Reason Could I Give? in a stylish arrangement by Eric Segnitz.”
