Spring Arts & Lectures Event Features Jazz Pianist

The third spring Arts & Lectures event will feature Ed Kornhauser, a well-known pianist

Immerse yourself in an evening of jazz as Kornhauser showcases the brilliance that earned him the honors of Best Jazz Artist and Best Jazz Album at the 2021 and 2022 San Diego Music Awards. Kornhauser’s artistry has been praised by the San Diego Troubadour website, which called him "one of San Diego’s top pianist/keyboardists." He’s not only a solo sensation but also an integral part of the Matt Smith Neu Jazz Trio, and his collaborations with Grammy Award-winning producer Kamau Kenyatta have produced acclaimed albums like "RETROgrade" and "I.Am.Calm."  

Before the concert, at 5:30, the CSUSM jazz ensemble will perform and receive feedback from Kornhauser; all are welcome to attend. Sign up for an evening filled with exceptional music, community spirit and the magic that only live performances can offer.  

The event is at 7:30 p.m. on March 4 in Arts 111. Reserve tickets online via the Arts & Lectures website. 

CSUSM’s Arts & Lectures series offers a diverse lineup of artistic, cultural and scholarly events every semester based on input and proposals from students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members. Attendees can reserve tickets online via the Arts & Lectures website
