Cecile McLorin Salvant, a 2020 MacArthur Fellow, is currently on a worldwide tour promoting her highly anticipated upcoming album, Ghost Song (Nonesuch Records, March 2022). The album, her sixth, features seven originals as well as five reimaginings of songs by Kate Bush, Gregory Porter, Sting, Harold Arlen, and Kurt Weill. According to Nonesuch, Ghost Song is an exploration of the many ways people can be haunted, by lingering memories, roads not taken, and ghosts real and imagined. It delves into the themes of ghosts, nostalgia, and yearning. “It’s unlike anything I’ve done before,” Salvant has said of the new album, “it’s getting closer to reflecting my personality as an eclectic curator. I’m embracing my weirdness!”
The Peterson Concert Series is open to all at no charge through the support of the Greenwich Library Board of Trustees and generous donors.
