Joey Alexander Trio

This event is sold out.

An extraordinary and uniquely gifted young pianist from Bali, Joey Alexander taught himself to play piano by listening with his father to classic jazz albums. Alexander’s father soon recognized that his son’s gift to grasp complicated musical concepts was beyond someone of his years. The family relocated to New York City to allow Alexander’s gift to flourish. It clearly was a wise decision: his recording debut, My Favorite Things, was nominated as Best Instrumental Jazz Album for the 2016 Grammy Awards. This is a rare opportunity to see a prodigious musical talent at the outset of his career.
