After Dvořák

September 30, 2011, 7:30 PM

The Chris Johnston Trio, with special guests Herb Smith (saxophone) and Michael Thomas (trumpet), will perform a salute to Czech composing giant Antonin Dvorak. The program will feature the works of Harry T. Burleigh, Will Marion Cook and Rubin Goldmark, American composers who were students of Dvorak. The program will also feature works by George Gershwin, a student of Goldmark, and Duke Ellington, a student of Cook. The trio includes Chris Johnston (piano), Wes Biles (Bass), and Clai Richardson (Drums).
 
The ensemble, led by Chris Johnston, will provide the audience with an entertaining evening of music, exploring the special lineage of quintessentially American folk songs accompanied by the legacy of Dvorak in the United States and the development of the art and its artist that ultimately became that most American of creations – jazz!

Light refreshments follow the event.
