The Center for the Performing Arts presents the Joey Alexander Trio at the Tarkington Theatre on Saturday, March 25th at 8:00 PM. Wynton Marsalis calls Joey Alexander “my hero,” and at age 12 this young Indonesian piano genius is fearless at the keyboard.
Following the release of his debut album with a highly anticipated performance at the Newport Jazz Festival, Alexander won the admiration of audiences by doing anything but playing it safe. A special segment featured on “60 Minutes” inspired thousands throughout the nation to follow his career. The technique, feeling and authority that comes naturally to Alexander puts him in a prodigy class all his own.
Joey Alexander performs a range of classic songs by Rodgers & Hammerstein, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane and Billy Strayhorn with a deft touch, adventurous spirit and improvisatory verve.
