For his 75th Birthday, pianist extraordinaire Dick Durham has pulled out all the stops and assembled a group of 10 musicians including 3 Navy Band masters AND, in a cameo appearance, Mainstay Founder Tom McHugh. These wonderful musicians will join Dick on stage in various configurations for an evening of exquisite instrumental jazz, full of the beauty of the American Song Book. John Wilson in the New York Times once proclaimed that Dick has “A Style approaching that of a quartet." His compositions have earned him two separate Maryland Governor’s Citations for excellence in the performing arts in 2003 and 2005. Ballads from his original musicals (adaptation of ‘She Stoops to Conquer’ and ‘Celluloid’) reflect on the joy and pathos of life. His jazz variations on the scores of musicals like “West Side Story” earn standing ovations. Whatever the surprises this musical magician pulls out of his hat, this will be a wonderful evening of jazz, from solos to large ensemble numbers played with virtuosity, emotion and humor. Note the 7pm start time.
And Happy Birthday Dick!
