The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Brooklyn-based composer, arranger, conductor, and 2022 Toulmin Fellow Jihye Lee presents the world premiere of her new work Infinite Connections, performed by her 18-piece jazz orchestra. This personal trilogy of works will showcase the bonds between Jihye, her mother, and her grandmother in celebration of one of the most fundamental connections in the human experience: that of a mother and child. Branching out from the mother-child relationship, the Jihye Lee Orchestra will explore all of the different, infinite connections between humans and the universe around them across nine compositions. Inspired by the traditional Korean rhythms that she fell in love with while on her creative journey to learn about her roots, Lee brings her ancestors’ music and philosophy into the jazz world to create an unconventional sound that reminds us of our harmonious kinship.
About Jihye Lee
"An Idiosyncratic, Personal & Intrepid Storyteller" - GRAMMY.com
Jihye Lee is a jazz composer and bandleader, regarded for her intimate and adventurous storytelling approach to large-ensemble jazz.
Born in Korea, she moved stateside more than a decade ago, attending Berklee College of Music without any previous jazz background. This relatively blank slate was not a hindrance; it engendered something wholly original, and she continued her studies at Manhattan School of Music under the direction of Jim McNeely. Her first orchestral album, April, was described as “thought-provoking and gut-wrenching all at once” by All That Jazz.
Her highly personal, idiosyncratic touch and knack for musical storytelling have begun receiving more attention in the New York scene and beyond — especially with her recent album, Daring Mind (March 2021 on Motéma Music). Daring Mind is partly themed on her arrival in New York, and the courage and self-determination needed to make it in the Big Apple. This album was covered in the New York Times, JazzTimes, DownBeat, Télérama, Le Monde, ABC Jazz, JazzWise, Musica Jazz, Süddeutsche Zeitung, GRAMMY.com and many more. Daring Mind received the Korean Music Awards’ Best Jazz Album prize, the Guardian’s Best Jazz Album #6 (2021), Spotify Best Jazz #4 (2021), and was nominated for the Libera Awards’ Best Jazz Record.
Lee has received numerous other commissions, honors, awards, and residencies from Jazz at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, BMI, the ASCAP Foundation, New York University / National Sawdust, Jazz Education Network, Amherst College, University of Denver, University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, Berklee College of Music, Queens Council on the Arts, the New York Foundation for the Arts, the Frankfurt Radio Big Band, Brussels Jazz Orchestra, the National Theater of Korea, and CJ Cultural Foundation.
