2011 American Pianists Awards winner Aaron Diehl plays Monk, Ellington, Geri Allen, Mary Lou Williams, and more

One of the premier pianists of his generation, Aaron Diehl has made an indelible mark on the jazz world in the last 15 years—as a soloist, as pianist of choice for vocal sensation Cécile McLorin Salvant, touring with Wynton Marsalis and more. But he arrived in jazz as a classically trained Juilliard graduate and recently drew raves for performances of Gershwin’s Concerto in F with orchestras including the New York Philharmonic and the Cleveland Orchestra. Now Diehl presents a one-of-a-kind solo concert on our stage, blurring lines and synthesizing his perspectives and passions, in a program of works by African American composers from William Grant Still to Duke Ellington.

Works of:
William Grant Still
Nathaniel Dett
Roland Hanna
Mary Lou Williams
Geri Allen
