It is my privilege and pleasure to announce my participation in a special concert on February 18 as part of the Louisville concerts series supporting the North Oldham High School Steinway Initiative.
This will be a fund-raising concert and all ticket proceeds will go towards the purchase of a $70,000 Steinway B concert grand piano.
Having played many Steinway B piano is in my lifetime, I believe strongly that any organization would benefit from such a fine instrument.
If you are not familiar with my career and my music here’s a quick video to introduce you to it.
As you may be aware there are many Louisville concerts that you could attend this year however, this one is extra special not only because of the organization that it is benefiting but the actual concert itself will not only be full of great jazz music, popular music, Kentucky standards and classics but will be filled with entertaining stories and banter from my 20 year touring career.
The organizer of the event Patrick MacDonald is extremely passionate and courageous in this initiative and I highly encourage you to support the event and if for any reason you cannot attend on February 18 then, please visit his website and join his mailing list so that you can receive information about upcoming Louisville concerts of interest.
I am personally excited about this event because, not only is it the first time that I am performing in the Louisville area, but I have done fund-raising concerts before and they are always well attended. I look forward to introducing myself and my music to the area and make it a memorable evening and rank among the best of the Louisville concerts.
Music for the evening will include popular classics and jazz from such notable musicians and composers as Dave Brubeck, Oscar Peterson, Chick Corea and some of my own music including compositions from my journey of 850 km across northern Spain on the famous Camino de Santiago.
Not only that I have received some requests to incorporate famous music from the great state of Kentucky such as “My Old Kentucky Home.”
All in all my belief is that this will be a great addition to the Louisville concerts’ series and I look forward to meeting new people from the area and I encourage you to support the event, the great cause and simply come out and enjoy a great evening of music and fun.
See you on the 18th!
