Album Notes (continued)

I know that Hurricane Sandy was devastating to so many of you: your neighbors, family and friends and companion animals, and I cannot imagine the kind of heartache that comes with losing not only your homes, but keepsakes, heirlooms, things that can never be replaced. It takes special courage to surmount all that and I guess it comes down to the triumph of the will of the human spirit. I find it’s particularly amazing that in the wake of all the devastation that hit Staten Island, and the surrounding areas of New York City, the St. George stands unmarked. Perhaps, as with the will of the human spirit, it is a symbol of the power of Art, in all its forms, that Creativity and the need for self-expression will triumph and never be lost to a civilization. Art has the power to heal and I hope that tonight’s concert may be helpful in that regard.

Reviews
“If I had to choose one word to describe Ann’s performance and the evening’s event it would be “elegant”. The grandeur of the venue was a perfect setting for the elegance of Ann Sweeten seated at a Steinway Concert Grand piano dressed in a stunning jeweled backless evening gown. In addition to the visual splendor, the word elegant equally applies to her compositions, playing style, and on-stage persona, which was both highly professional and emanating creative expression with style and grace. Watching her in performance only deepened the appreciation for her musical artistry that I had developed in listening to her CD’s. An Evening with Ann Sweeten is a rare opportunity to see and hear one of today’s finest pianists, present her original compositions in a magnificent setting; a flawless concert of exquisite music performed by a consummate musician.”
