Thursday, May 19th @ 8:00 PM

Kerrytown Concert House is honored to welcome pianist/composer/arranger Tamir Hendelman, for a special solo performance playing his own take on the music of Richard Rodgers! In Richard Rodgers Reinventions, Hendelman celebrates this great American musical theater composer, who from the 1920’s through the 1960’s contributed countless classics that entered the jazz repertoire. Playful, tender, bittersweet and thrilling, Rodgers’ melodies are a perfect match to the lyrics of Lorenz Hart and later Oscar Hammerstein. Artists from Ella to Miles to Coltrane made these songs their own.

An award-winning jazz pianist, Hendelman has performed with jazz greats including Harry Allen, Teddy Edwards, Warren Vache, Houston Person, Jeff Clayton, Nick Brignola, Phil Upchurch, Rickey Woodard, John Clayton, and Barbara Morrison. He is known for his imaginative and sensitive playing and arranging on his own trio recordings and those of the Jeff Hamilton Trio and the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra since 2000, as well as his work with Natalie Cole, Barbra Streisand, Roberta Gambarini, Graham Dechter, Richard Galliano and Claudio Roditi. His latest CD, Destinations reached #1 in the US jazz charts, and other recent recordings include Graham Dechter’s Minor Influence and Jeff Hamilton Trio’s Catch Me If You Can.

In this rare solo appearance at Kerrytown Concert House, Hendelman will take a journey through Rodgers’ music to see where it leads us!

This concert is made possible with generous support from Solo Concert Sponsors, Ron & Mimi Bogdasarian.
