Our Midday Music Series continues on Friday, October 28 at 12:30 p.m., with a free 30-minute concert in Clingman Commons by the acclaimed jazz duo of Peter H. Bloom, flute, and John Funkhouser, piano. The concert is part of the duo’s CD Release Tour in Alabama and Georgia, celebrating their new album, Exuberant Ellingtonia, with classics by Duke Ellington and his circle, including Take the A Train, Caravan, I’m Beginning to See the Light, and In a Sentimental Mood. These selections and more will be performed on the concert.
Bloom and Funkhouser have performed together for almost 30 years. Both are veterans of the legendary Aardvark Jazz Orchestra (49th season) and the FiLmprov Ensemble (25th season), and each has impressive credentials performing nationally and internationally.
We are pleased to be able to reschedule this concert from its original performance date of January 21, which did not take place due to cancellation of the duo’s southeastern U.S. tour last winter.
The concert will also be live-streamed, and be made available for later listening at any time. Please do not miss the opportunity to enjoy music performed by these outstanding musicians!
