An amazingly talented classical pianist who has performed in 41 countries, Frederick Moyer returns to Kiawah on September 30 to open the Kiawah Arts Council concert season with his jazz group, the Jazz Arts Trio. The Jazz Arts Trio, through note-for-note transcriptions of historic moments in piano jazz, is keeping alive music that otherwise would live on only in recordings. The Jazz Arts Trio does not simply imitate but infuses these timeless standards with their own vitality. Joining Fred will be well known performers Petter Tilloston on bass and Peter Fraenkel on drums. You won’t want to miss their jazz transcriptions of the music made famous by the late great Oscar Peterson, Vince Guaraldi, Bill Evans, Erroll Garner and Herbie Hancock, among others. The concert will begin at 7:30pm at the Episcopal Church of Our Saviour. Complimentary tickets are available to the public at Kiawah Island Town Hall beginning September 16.
