Jazz and tango performance at Metropolitan Campus to include ‘Sketches of Spain’
Virtuoso violinist Gabriel Bolkosky will bring Spanish-infused jazz and tango to Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) for an evening of musical exploration on Friday, Nov. 13.
The performance featuring Bolkosky and his quartet begins at 7 p.m. at Tri-C’s Metropolitan Campus Mainstage Theatre, 2809 Woodland Ave. in Cleveland.
“I am excited to present Gabe — not only because of his passionate playing, but because of the unique programs that he puts together,” said Terri Pontremoli, director of Tri-C JazzFest and public programs. “It will be a thrill for both jazz and classical audiences.”
Gabriel Bolkosky and Friends will open with two famous works — Histoire du Tango and Estaciones Portenas (The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires) — by Argentine tango composer Astor Piazzolla.
Following intermission, Bolkosky will be joined on stage by jazz musicians Marion Hayden, a bassist, and Andrew Bishop, a saxophonist. They will combine talents to play an arrangement from Sketches of Spain, a famed studio album by the legendary Miles Davis.
Bolkosky, a native of Detroit, studied at the Cleveland Institute of Music. His diverse repertoire includes classical and contemporary works with a variety of collaborators across musical genres. He has released seven CDs that show his breadth as a musician.
