Yes! You know Cole Porter!

Everybody loves Cole Porter. But most jazz musicians really love Cole Porter. Singers love his lyrics, which contain great wit, amazing rhymes and beautiful imagery. Instrumentalists love his elegant melodies and sophisticated song structures.

During the three decades of Porter’s greatest productivity — the late 1920s through the late ’50s — jazz musicians would latch on to the latest Porter songs from his Broadway shows or Hollywood musicals and turn them into jazz standards almost immediately. Jazz artists are still exploring Cole Porter today. And why not? Along with the songs represented in this list, some of his other works include “Begin the Beguine,” “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye,” “You’re the Top,” “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “Easy to Love,” “Miss Otis Regrets,” “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”… and that’s just scratching the surface of his amazing output. (From Getting to Know: The Cole Porter Songbook. Nick Morrison, NPR Music)

Chopin meets the Beatles

Sunday, October 14, 2018

2:00 – 4:00pm

Click here for tickets!

Pamela Howland, a gifted American pianist, Steinway Artist, and 2017-2018 U.S. Fulbright Scholar in Poland, is that rare classically trained performing artist who thrives as an entertainer.

Steinway Artist Pamela Howland is a classically trained concert pianist, a specialist in the works of Polish composer Frederic Chopin, and a fan of The Beatles. She is also currently is a Fulbright Scholar (2017-18) living and teaching at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan.

Vivacious, imaginative, sensitive and just a trifle unconventional, she is that rare classically trained performing artist who thrives as an entertainer. She communicates emotions to audiences through the language of music, and specializes in combining types of music that will draw in audiences from different ages and backgrounds.

Howland has created original piano arrangements of beloved Beatles tunes, transporting the Fab Four back to Chopin’s musical landscape. In her spectacular new program, Beatles arrangements are paired with favorite Chopin pieces and Howland talks to the audience about her artistic process in both, spotlighting musical ideas that fascinated the pop-rock heroes and the venerated composer alike.

Chopin Meets the Beatles will be fascinating!
