Salon Series: Andrea Wittgens
On Saturday, April 8th at 2 PM, our 2023 Salon Series culminates with a kaleidoscopic performance of music & video by Andrea Wittgens. The singer-songwriter & visual artist will perform on the grand piano in Krause Hall, debuting an original video installation accompaniment to her music. Wittgens, whose style pulls from pop and jazz to early punk, offers references to Joni Mitchel, Tori Amos, and even Patti Smith, all the while creating a sound all her own. DVAA is grateful to be a part of Wittgens’ debut of this multi-media performance. The synthesis of sound, lyrics and visual art creates an experience not to be missed.
About the Artist
Singer-songwriter Andrea Wittgens sleeps under her piano and dreams in four-part harmony. Born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, she started her musical journey studying classical piano while belting out jazz standards after hours. After exploring the darker sounds of grunge-era Seattle, she finally landed in New York City where she has been captivating the listening rooms of the Lower East Side for the past decade. Her songs and performances are dynamic, ranging from hypnotic and ethereal to raw and bold; they are carefully-crafted stories delivered as little pieces of cinema in word and sound.
