Featured Festival Concert:
Fred Hersch – Anat Cohen Duo, June 11
A nurturer of talent, pianist Fred Hersch has taught a played in duo with a panoply of talents, from Julian Lage to Joe Lovano to Bill Frisell. But when Israeli clarinetist Anat Cohen arrived to collaborate with Hersch, she came as an equal – a romantic with a tone as big as the sky and a fertile, limitless imagination. Perfect for Hersch, who is a genius for whom all possibilities emerge from the romantic. More about this concert.
“It is a heavenly match,” writes Jazz Police of a recent performance in New York. “Fred and Anat, despite their differences in generation and culture, speak the same eloquent language of improvisation and melody.” We’re certain you’ll find their concert Saturday night, June 11 at the Raven Performing Arts Theater a heavenly event you won’t want to miss. Tickets still available.
