CES at FSU to Host Jazz Group Christian Sands Trio in LIVE! At StarScape Concert
CES at Frostburg State University celebrates Jazz Appreciation Month with a LIVE! at StarScape performance from the Christian Sands Trio on Thursday, April 25, at 7:30 p.m. in the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall in FSU’s Lane University Center. The club-style event includes bar service and a menu of appetizers and desserts.
Sands, a five-time Grammy-nominated jazz pianist, is an emerging force with a stylistic range that includes everything from stride piano and swing to be-bop, progressive jazz, fusion, Brazilian and Afro-Cuban. Jazz legend Wynton Marsalis declared him a “jazz star of the future,” and the New York Times raved about his style as “groove-drenched, gospelly and smartly plotted – a balance of physical body and electric charge.”
Immediately following the performance, CES will join forces with FSU’s WFWM-FM Public Radio to present the Offstage Series with WFWM, when station director Chuck Dicken joins the artists onstage for a lively interactive discussion with the audience.
Tickets are $18 for adults and $16.20 for youth under 18. Member, military and group discount rates are also available.
