George Winston returns to Crossings for a piano solo concert on Monday, April 3, 7:00 p.m., at the State Theatre. Enjoy works from his next album SPRING CAROUSEL-A CANCER RESEARCH BENEFIT, to be released in March 2017.
George Winston, one of the most recognized solo pianists in the world, has released 13 solo piano albums since 1972. His work features a variety of styles including melodic folk piano, New Orleans R&B piano, and stride piano.
SPRING CAROUSEL features a collection of 15 solo piano compositions written by Winston while in recovery from a bone marrow transplant for Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) at City of Hope, in Duarte, California. Proceeds from the sales of Spring Carousel will directly benefit City of Hope.
Additionally, since 1986, George has been raising money for food banks and service organizations in every community he visits while on tour. He will continue to raise awareness through Canned Food Drives and information about the local organizations available in the lobby. The CD and merchandise proceeds will benefit the local Food bank or Organization in each market. Please join him in support of your local food bank by bringing a donation of non-perishable food to the concert.
Other music you will hear are pieces inspired by the seasons and topographies. He performs songs from his seasonal favorites AUTUMN, DECEMBER, WINTER INTO SPRING, and SUMMER, as well as Peanuts pieces from his Vince Guaraldi tribute albums LINUS & LUCY –THE MUSIC OF VINCE GUARALDI, and LOVE WILL COME-THE MUSIC OF VINCE GUARALDI, VOL. 2, and more.
