Imperfectly Perfect

  • Club Helsinki at Helsinki Hudson (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Vocalists Jonathon Comfort, SarahAnn Duffy, Addie Rose Forstman, and Sun-Ly Pierce, joined by pianist Sophia Zhou, will present a self-curated concert of contemporary American music exploring the ever changing and complicated role of family in the 21st century. Donations to support the Kids in Need of Defense Fund (KIND) can be made at the door or online by visiting supportkind.org.

 Through the incorporation of song, spoken word, and personal experiences of family relationships we hope to offer the audience a new curiosity regarding their own definition and preconceived idea of family. 

Performed at Helsinki Hudson’s Club stage, the concert will be presented cabaret style with dinner and drinks available through Club Helsinki’s restaurant menu. Club Helsinki prides itself on their ever changing seasonal and locally sourced menu. They strive to create a menu of creative homespun seasonally selected food in a welcoming and beautiful atmosphere. Chef Horner’s menus reflect food from his youth - tastes learned from his grandmother, where outdoor cooking, Pig Pickings, Shrimp Boils and Oyster Roasts were the norms of the day.


Imperfectly Perfect is an all-american program, consisting of post 1950 compositions relating to the universal themes of loss, parenthood, familial conflict, and the celebration of family.  The music will range from the avant-garde compositions of George Rochberg, to the cinematic music of Guggenheim Fellowship award winner Jake Heggie, and will feature selections from renowned and well-loved theater composer Stephen Sondheim.
