AmiciMusic Salutes Jewish Jazz
Sunday, September 24 - 2:00 p.m.- AmiciMusic, “Jewish Jazz”, w/ Daniel Weiser, Steve Loew. Chamber jazz. $18 advance/$20 door
On Sunday, September 24 at 2:00 p.m., the Amici Music series, historically one of the White Horse Black Mountain’s most popular draws, returns with a special program, “Jewish Jazz”. Pianist Daniel Weiser and clarinetist Steve Loew will explore the uniquely American music that blossomed in the interaction of Eastern European Jewish immigrant communities in New York City and African-Americans moving North in the Great Migrations, forging one of this country’s great musical fusions. The concert will feature George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” along with works by Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman and more.
Daniel Weiser is familiar to audiences throughout Western North Carolina in his role as pianist and Artistic Director for AmiciMusic, which seeks to break down barriers between artist and audience with performances of chamber music in informal and non-traditional venues. He’s remained a regular on the White Horse stage since relocating to Baltimore, continuing to dazzle audiences with his command of a wide range of genres, from classical to musical theater and jazz.
Steve Loew is a former clarinetist with the US Marine Band and has played for five Presidents. He’s also performed with the New York Philharmonic and the National Symphony, and has organized several clarinet based chamber music groups in the Asheville area. Steve has been a featured soloist in a number of AmiciMusic programs.
