In three words: "A remarkable musician", raves the Washington Post. Pianist-Composer Dan Tepfer, Saturday, May 6, 5pm

Admission $15

And the accolades continue to pour in! Dan Tepfer has made an international name for himself as a pianist-composer of wide-ranging ambition, individuality and drive — one “who refuses to set himself limits” (France’s Télérama); "One of the moment's most adventurous and relevant musicians" (New York Magazine). The New York City-based Tepfer has performed with some of the leading lights in jazz, from Pharaoh Sanders to veteran saxophone luminary Lee Konitz. And we're thrilled to welcome him!
