Jazz on the Triangle with Sonja Porter Hopkins

April 28 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

$3 - $50

The annual series Jazz on the Triangle returns to the Church of the Holy Trinity for the twenty-fourth season this year.  Concerts will be the April 28, May 19, and June 16, featuring some of Nashville’s finest and most respected talent.

The season opens on April 28 with Sonja Porter Hopkins. Nashville-based songwriter and jazz vocalist Hopkins has a vocal texture that encompasses high spirited tones of nostalgic jazz. She has been singing since childhood growing up in Mobile, Alabama. She began her journey, as have many accomplished artists, in a small church.

Sonja performed throughout her youth in many community events, college homecoming events and university pageants. Her passion for the arts and music continued to grow leading her to relocate to Nashville in 2001.
Sonja’s Gospel roots can be heard when she renders tunes like “In a Sentimental Mood” and “At Last.” With subtle soulful undertones, she seeks to convey her passion for love and music. She brings a fresh, eclectic sensibility to contemporary jazz. However, she also has the vocal strength and richness to deliver a Jazz Classic like “Misty” and “Cry me a river.”

Sonja’s debut Jazz Album entitled “Jazz Classics” released in 2017 is a tribute to the Jazz Legends featuring “In a Sentimental Mood” as well as other traditional Jazz standards.

Come enjoy Sonja’s rich, nimble voice in an entertaining and uplifting afternoon on the Triangle.  And come full circle with us as Sonja returns to a small family church.
