Jazz in Classical


Jazz in Classical Music
Part II

Featuring the Music of Claude Bolling
Tuesday, April 7, 7:00pm

Our first venture into the world of classical music and its use of jazz elements was such a success we decided to do it again! We have a fun evening of music for you that is fresh and alive with several outstanding artists.

On this concert will be music of the accomplished French pianist Claude Bolling, who wrote several suites for classical instruments with a jazz trio. This evening you will get a taste of Bolling's work, with a movement from each of the following:

Suite for Violin with Philip Fiscor, violin
Toot Suite for Trumpet with Tom Gershwin, trumpet
Suite for Flute with Sonya Yeager Meeks, flute
Suite for Cello with Danielle Guideri, cello

The jazz trio will feature Reggie Berg, piano; Robin Ruscio, bass; and Todd Reid, drums.
