Charu Suri

Formed in the spring of 2018, the trio consists of Charu Suri on the piano, J. Brunka on the double bass, and Jay O'Brien on the drums. The ensemble has received praise for its renditions of standards and original music. Its debut album, “Lollipops for Breakfast,” with original music composed by Suri, debuts soon.

Charu Suri has been playing the piano since the age of five, and won an international piano competition at the age of 15. She has a Piano Performance certificate from Princeton University, where she received her undergraduate degree, and a Master’s in Music from the Manhattan School of Music.

Her piece for chamber orchestra, “The Shield of Achilles” was performed by the Princeton University Chamber Ensemble. As part of an atelier workshop with Toni Morrison at Princeton, two of her original pieces were performed by a chamber ensemble, along with cellist Yo-Yo Ma and double bass player Edgar Meyer.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
