Flying Home: Lucas Kadish Heads Back to Cleveland to Celebrate Tri-C JazzFest 40th Anniversary
Former Tri-C student will perform at BOP STOP at The Music Settlement on March 9
New York-based guitarist Lucas Kadish is heading home to Cleveland to participate in Tri-C JazzFest’s Flying Home series presented by Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
Kadish’s group TUNDRA features bassist Nick Dunston and drummer Tim Angulo. The trio will perform original music and jazz standards at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 9, at BOP STOP at The Music Settlement, located at 29020 Detroit Ave.
The Flying Home series, sponsored in large part by the George Gund Foundation, is a special concert series featuring former Tri-C students making their mark as jazz performers across the United States.
Kadish participated in Tri-C’s jazz programs from 2012 through 2014. He later graduated from The New School for Jazz in New York City, where he started TUNDRA. He was named a National Young Arts finalist and was a U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts semifinalist.
With TUNDRA, Kadish has played jazz festivals in Bern, Winnipeg and Montreux. The group has performed at numerous venues in NYC such as Small’s Jazz Club, The Jazz Gallery, Cornelia St. Cafe, Nublu, Baby's All Right, and Jazz at Lincoln Center's Appel Room.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Lucas home,” said Terri Pontremoli, director of JazzFest. “This series is a great way to celebrate Tri-C JazzFest’s commitment to education and excellence.”
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at www.themusicsettlement.org or by calling 216-771-6551. Tickets will also be available at the door on the night of the performance.
