Simon Tedeschi + Kevin Hunt Fundraising Concert
Following his enormous success of last year Simon Tedeschi joins forces with long time collaborator, renowned jazz pianist Kevin Hunt, in a two piano performance......a unique blend of styles and backgrounds.
Two amazing pianists on two pianos – a performance that transcends genre… where it’s hard to know where the jazz ends and the classical begins…stirring the jazz and classical realms into one musical recipe!
From this exciting mix, Tedeschi and Hunt serve up music from Bach to Duke Ellington, Gershwin and Brubeck, and a moving new work by Kevin Hunt.
