A sound palette of world rhythms infused with a French twist. Inspired by early '90's new wave, Bergamot Rose's songs are composed of tart lyrics in French and English balanced by vibrant rhythms and instrumentation. At the 2/21 show, the group will be premiering new arrangements of Jennifer's songs for string trio made possible by acclaimed composer and arranger Ethan Foote. The ensemble will feature Jennifer (Scott) Bergamot-Rose on piano/vocals, Carol Anne Bosco on cello, Megan DiGiorgio on viola and Jonathan Goren on violin.
The ensemble's upcoming album "Songs of Truth," which will be recorded live at this performance, explores the intense emotional landscape of relationships, finding oneself and uncovering the truth. Why Bergamot Rose? Bergamot protects the heart - the Rose - in all of us, while radiating sunshine, joy and beauty.
In addition to the group's nouveau alternative vibe, Bergamot Rose is acclaimed for their performance of French Fusion and world jazz with vocals in French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and English. The group has been honored to perform for The French Ambassador, The French Embassy, The Canadian Delegation to OAS as well as music venues in Brooklyn, DC, MD and VA.
