Great Hall, Peterson Student Center
$25 at the door or by advance purchase
Back by popular demand and expanded, Elevated features nationally known jazz musicians in an intimate club-like setting. Doors open at 7 p.m.; small plates and wine and beer are available
On March 15, pianist Larry Ham and saxophonist Woody Witt take the stage. Larry Ham also is a composer and arranger and a noted New York sideman, performing, touring, and recording with many great jazz artists. As a United States Department of State Jazz Ambassador, Ham toured 11 West African nations in 2001 and 2002 in a cultural exchange program. Woody Witt serves as the entertainment director of Houston’s premiere jazz club, Cézanne. He also has extensive performance experience. Both musicians are professors of jazz, in New York and Texas, respectively.
Pianist Alan Pasqua headlines the final concert of the series on March 29. Alan Pasqua easily traverses the worlds of pop and jazz, having recorded or toured with such artists as Aretha Franklin and Elton John and worked with many composers, including John Williams, Quincy Jones, Dave Grusin, and Henry Mancini. In the jazz world, Pasqua has played and recorded with numerous luminaries, among them Jack Dejohnette, Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker, Joe Henderson, Stanley Clarke, Gary Burton, and The Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra. His latest critically acclaimed release, “Twin Bill” (BFM Digital), features Pasqua, recorded on two pianos, playing the music of Bill Evans.
Music on the Hill™ Elevated is made possible by the generosity of our event sponsors:
