Ben Rosenblum Jazz Trio

Tuesday February 16, 2021 07:00 p.m. in Turner Chapel

Internationally-touring jazz pianist and accordionist Ben Rosenblum brings his trio to North Greenville University to perform an intimate and exciting concert of improvised instrumental music. The New York City-based multi-instrumentalist has been described as “mature beyond his years,” (Sea of Tranquility), an “impressive talent” (All About Jazz), who “caresses [the music] with the reverence it merits” (Downbeat Magazine).

Drawing from an eclectic repertoire which includes selections from the jazz and popular music traditions, as well as global music influences from South America, Eastern Europe, Ireland and the Caribbean, Rosenblum combines his modern, melodic sensibility with his broad knowledge of a variety of musical lineages from the past one hundred years. An award-winning composer and arranger, Rosenblum also includes selections from his extensive catalogue of original music.

The trio never repeats the same program twice in a row – every evening is a unique experience shaped by the audience and the setting. Join the Ben Rosenblum Trio for an evening of new and familiar songs, and be a part of a concert that will never happen in the same way again. (Approx. 90 mins)

Please join the NGU Orchestra for a concert featuring symphonic works by master composers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) and Franz Schubert (1797-1828). Mozart, one of the most prolific and talented child prodigies, died suddenly by a yet unknown cause at 35 years old. Some have speculated strychnine poisoning while others have speculated that he died from medical treatments with salts of mercury, rheumatic fever, vasculitis leading to renal failure, or trichinosis from eating undercooked pork.

Schubert, known primarily for his over 600 art songs, contracted typhoid fever after drinking tainted water and died suddenly at 31 years old. Both composers left lasting legacies of music which have inspired and challenged composers and listeners ever since. Please join the NGU Orchestra as they perform Mozart’s Symphony No. 25 in G Minor and Schubert’s Symphony No. 5 in B-flat Major. (Approx. 60 mins)
