This will be a very unique program of fantastic crossover music uniting the worlds of Classical and Jazz. Flutist Novoa Champion and pianist/Art. Dir. Daniel Weiser will perform several movements from the phenomenal Second Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano by the wonderful French jazz pianist and composer, Claude Bolling. Bolling was one of the first to experiment in the fusion of these two musical idioms and produced a string of terrific crossover albums with Jean-Pierre Rampal, Yo-Yo Ma, Pinchas Zuckerman, and more in the 1970’s and 1980’s. His music is still fresh and innovative today—true chamber music, but with a jazz flair! Mr. Champion will also sing a few French cabaret songs as well. You won’t want to miss this show! It’s a great way to finish the summer.
You must be vaccinated to attend this concert and masks are required.
