Jazz pianist Stephanie Trick featured in Guest Artist Series
Posted: Monday, February 11, 2019
Pianist Stephanie Trick, internationally-recognized master of traditional jazz piano styles, will be featured in the next Jazz Guest Artist Series concert. Co-sponsored by the University of Evansville Department of Music and the Evansville Jazz Society, the concert will take place in Wheeler Concert Hall on Sunday, February 17, at 4:00 p.m.
Trick is widely recognized as today’s most outstanding proponent of the jazz piano styles known as Harlem stride and boogie-woogie. A classically trained pianist, she discovered piano jazz while still in high school. Trick has thoroughly incorporated the swinging piano styles of James P. Johnson, Willie “The Lion” Smith, Fats Waller and Meade Lux Lewis.
Trick has performed throughout the USA and Europe, and her exciting performances entertain and engage her audiences with prodigious and amazingly accurate technique.
Trick has recorded seven albums and one DVD. Her “Live” CD was awarded the “New Talent Prize of 2011” by the Hot Club of France.
Admission to the concert is $15 for adults, $10 for Jazz Society members and $5 for students with I.D. Tickets can be obtained by contacting the UE Department of Music at 812-488-2754, or at the door.
