Barb Jungr to support Sunera
Sunera Foundation will hold a Charity Dinner on September 4, at The Colombo Plaza in support of the Foundation’s programmes. The highlight of the evening is the performance by popular British jazz-singer Barb Jungr accompanied by her pianist Russell Churney.

“I am pleased and proud to be associated with Sunera Foundation. Their work, using the performing arts in the community and with people with disabilities, is of great importance in Sri Lanka and in the world. It is my great pleasure to give any help that I can give that enables them to continue and to expand their activities,” said Barb Jungr.

In March this year, Linn Records released Barb Jungr’s fourth solo album “Love Me Tender” which had an incredible response from the public and the critics. The album draws from the eclectic repertoire of Elvis Presley which Jungr has completely reconceived. The artiste has previously transformed classic Brel, Dylan and Ferré songs and for her performance in Sri Lanka she has prepared a rich music selection from her different albums.

Ms. Sunethra Bandaranaike, Chairperson of Sunera Foundation said: “Barb has been an unconditional supporter to Sunera since 2001 and her commitment to our work highlights her understanding of social development through artistic expression, which is at the end, what our mission is all about. I’m thrilled she is back in Sri Lanka, not only because of her outstanding skills as a performer, but also because she will remind us all of our capacity to drive positive change into society.”

Tickets for “An Evening with Barb Jungr” are available at The Colombo Plaza lobby.
