Billy Childs remains one of the most diversely prolific and acclaimed artists working in music today — a prodigious talent, whose canon of original compositions and arrangements have garnered him numerous awards, including four Grammy awards with 13 nominations, and a Guggenheim Fellowship. “One of L.A.’s best and most picturesque musical chambers” (Los Angeles Times) welcomes a “Los Angeles treasure” for a sizzling showcase of Childs’ abundance of “improvisatory skills and a powerful sense of swing one associates with world-class artists” (Los Angeles Times).
Meet and chat with Billy Childs and his trio during a champagne reception between the concerts (3-4:30 PM).
These concerts are cosponsored by Donald & Zoe Cosgrove and Lisa & Alvin Michaelson.
