Each player will take a turn offering selections from personal storehouses of distinctive music.

Walton, hard bop jazz pianist, was named the National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master for 2010, the nation’s highest honor in jazz.

Keyboardist-composer Hiromi Uehara has electrified audiences and critics on both hemispheres. She has performed and recorded with pianist and mentor, Chick Corea, as well as with the Stanley Clarke Trio, and has released her first solo album, Place to Be, which chronicles her worldwide travels.

Enjoy this unique evening of solo piano times three. The concert is sponsored by Renaissance Technologies LLC.
