Nov. 10, 2011 - PRLog -- Only weeks after being named Houston's Best Arts Ambassador by the Houston Press, pianist Jade Simmons is taking her talents to D.C. after being invited to play as a part of the holiday festivities at the White House on Friday, December 16th, 2011. From December 3rd until the 23rd, artists from all over the world have been asked to perform during the White House Holiday Open House period. Simmons will perform a two-hour concert of Classical music including the debut of a set of her own Contemporary Classical arrangements of popular Christmas carols such as this version of Carol of the Bells she released on YouTube last year. http://www.youtube.com/newmuseic#p/c/813A836E2EF83C2D/7/0u1aknlpT_Y

This past Halloween weekend viewers everywhere had the opportunity to watch the Yamaha Artist turned social media maven in New Orleans during the actual process of recording the electronics portion of her second CD, the Paganini Project, with Entertainment One due out in early summer of 2012. On http://www.stalkingsuperwoman.com/, Facebook and Twitter, the curious were granted access to behind-the-scenes pictures, tweets, videos and live streaming video of rehearsals, the actual recording session and even the album cover photo shoot. Immediately prior to heading to Pennsylvania Avenue, Jade will record the more traditional portion of her CD including works by Rachmaninoff, Liszt, Muczynski and Turkish pianist/composer Fazil Say at the National Academy of Arts and Letters in New York. She will play much of this repertoire in her White House debut.

Always attuned to the visual aesthetics of performance, for her White House appearance Jade is excited to don fashions selected for her by Ephraim Zamzow-Danforth, owner of the new boutique MZ Couture in Houston.
