BRATTLEBORO- On Friday and Saturday, April 7 and 8, the Vermont Jazz Center will present a day-and-a-half-long festival including eight concerts and five master classes featuring solo jazz piano.

This festival is a celebration of the Steinway D, nine-foot concert grand piano gifted to the VJC by the McKenzie Family Charitable Trust and rebuilt by piano technician Bill Ballard.

Now that the VJC is home to a top-level instrument, it is the only venue in New England that supports a festival devoted exclusively to the art of solo jazz piano performance. Pianists presenting concerts and master classes in this festival include world renowned players Stanley Cowell, Luis Perdomo, Amina Figarova, Miro Sprague and Yoko Miwa as well as local performers Franz Robert, Alki Steriopoulos and VJC director Eugene Uman.

Friday concert only admission will be $20, Saturday concert only admission is $20, total fest package will be $80 (includes five master classes and eight performances.)

Tickets can be bought online at

Other ticket payment/reservation options will be at In the Moment, 143 Main Street
