19-10-2018 12:00:00 20-10-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Joey Alexander with Strings | 8:00 PM When pianist Joey Alexander first performed in Rose Theater at age 11, it was a history-making highlight of Jazz at Lincoln Center's 2014 gala. He has since sold out Jazz at Lincoln Center's Appel Room and Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, and now, at age 15, he returns to our largest stage as a headliner. Following multiple Grammy Award nominations, a 60 Minutes feature, performances at top international festivals, and universal critical acclaim, this young virtuoso continues to challenge himself and expand his artistry. That passion will be felt tonight as Alexander performs original compositions and his favorite jazz classics in solo, duo, and trio settings—as well as with a string section for the first time at Jazz at Lincoln Center. The string parts will be written and conducted by Grammy Award–winning composer and arranger Richard DeRosa. A master craftsman, DeRosa has arranged for Glenn Miller, Stephen Sondheim, the Chicago Orchestra, New York Pops, and dozens more. DeRosa also recently co-wrote arrangements for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis' Leonard Bernstein at 100 concerts. With DeRosa's brilliant contributions, Alexander joins a celebrated lineage of jazz musicians to perform with strings. It is a thrilling privilege to witness the evolution of a rare talent like Alexander, and these concerts will be another firsthand experience of history in the making. Free pre-concert discussion nightly at 7pm. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=316739 Dizzy's Club Coca Cola Dizzy's Club Coca Cola
