Event Image Grace Goudy Distinguished Artists Series: Bryan Pezzone, piano. Concert
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

Acclaimed pianist Bryan Pezzone will perform as part of Willamette University’s Distinguished Artists Series on September 19th, 2018, at 7:30 p.m. in Rogers Music Center. Joining him will be Willamette Music faculty guest artists Tyler Abbott, string bass; Ryan Biesak, drums and percussion; Sean Flannery, saxophone; Mike Horsfall, vibraphone; James Miley, piano; Mike Nord, guitar/electronics; Paul Owen, percussion.

Willamette University and the Grace Goudy Distinguished Artists Series welcome back — for the third time — a pianist described in Yamaha Behind the Scenes as “the foremost freelance pianist for film, television soundtrack recording, contemporary music premieres and chamber music working today.” Bryan Pezzone is in his element, from Bernstein to Berio, Billy Joel to The Beatles, and Bach to Brahms.

The Los Angeles Times declares that “Bryan Pezzone is a wonderful pianist whose exacting touch and gamey sense of adventure make him a favorite of the Los Angeles music scene. His playing is strikingly reminiscent of the sort of pianistically effusive style present in the recordings of Gershwin.”

The concert itself will be a wonderful and unique event, combining seven Willamette music faculty as guest artists on a program highlighting the fundamental and miraculous art of improvisation. This “celebration” will include original compositions, standards and free improvisation.

Please join us for what will be an evening of creativity and delightful surprises for all!

General admission tickets are $23, with discounts available for members of the Willamette community, students, children, and Oregon Trail cardholders.

Also in Rogers Music Center's Hudson Hall on September 18th, the public is welcome to observe master classes for Willamette University students at 10:30am. Admission to the master classes is free.
