I have a very special performance coming up at the end of the month with the fantastic conductor Reona Ito. On Tuesday, May 30th at 2pm, I will be a guest artist jazz piano soloist with Mr. Ito and the New York Harmonic Band in a Japan-USA Goodwill Concert at Carnegie Hall. We will be playing arrangements of popular folk and swing songs from American history, as well as traditional and more modern Japanese music. The concert will be very unique, as I will be improvising alongside the written orchestral part, and we will be working with the interplay of jazz and classical music styles. Best of all, tickets are free! So definitely pick up tickets at the box office on the day of the show. You can learn more at the following link: https://www.carnegiehall.org/Calendar/2017/5/30/0200/PM/Japan-USA-Goodwill-Concert/. Hope to see you there!
