An Evening with George Winston
Inspired by the seasons and topographies, pianist George Winston is a master and player of a variety of styles. Greats such as Professor Longhair, James Booker and Henry Butler influence his New Orleans R&B piano. He has interpreted solo pieces from Frank Zappa to melodic pianist Philip Aaberg. For stride piano he pulls from the likes of Thomas "Fats" Waller and Teddy Wilson. Armed with Multi-Platinum, and Gold albums as well as a Grammy for Forest, George plays over 100 solo conserts a year, performing songs from his seasonal favorites Autumn, December, Winter Into Spring, and Summer, as well as Peanuts pieces from his Vince Guaraldi tribute albums. To aid in George's local philanthropy efforts, please bring a canned food donation to the concert. Tickets are $35 and the concert starts at 8:00 p.m.
