Presented by Diablo Regional Arts Association
on the Rudney Plaza (corner of Locust St & Civic Dr)
August 20 - 21, 2021


After the great success of Sarah McKenzie’s 2017 album, Paris in the Rain (Impulse! Records), the 31-year-old pianist, singer, and composer returns with the poignant, Secrets of My Heart. Paris in the Rain opened more opportunities for her to perform around the world in such faraway places as Brazil, Korea, Japan, and established her in the United States. Its title song became one of her signature tunes and is one of the highlights of her live shows.

“Traveling was something that I really had to adjust to,” McKenzie says. “In the beginning, it is very exciting. I often describe it as going into a magical world; it’s stepping off reality and going into this world that’s so unreal. Then you come home, and all that activity stops. It’s been a world of extremes.”

Secrets of My Heart documents McKenzie’s burgeoning brilliance interpreting 20th-century jazz standards with her penchant for crafting sterling compositions that will surely become jazz standards in the 21st century.

“Ultimately, this album is about me embracing the unknown and going with love,” McKenzie explains.

In addition to performing songs from her latest album, Sarah will also be showcasing pieces from Music Connects Our World - a production that Diablo Regional Arts Association was proud to commission in October 2020.
