Experience the music you know and love, as if for the first time. The art of improvisation is one that dates back further than written music itself. Join pianist, composer, and improviser Charlie Albright for an afternoon of live improvisation and witness the creation of new works that will never be heard the same way again.

The improvisation was...spectacular, and the spontaneity, even with stylistic similarity to Chopin and Rachmaninoff, kept one on the edge of one’s seat. The improvisation alone was worth the trip. Bravo—and encore!
