Timeless Classics & Popular Standards
In this special Averitt Center fundraising concert, “Timeless Classics and Popular Standards,” Dr. Braz celebrates the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday with an informal mix of “American Songbook” standards, popular, rock/jazz, film and Broadway themes—plus a few surprises. He’s bringing back his popular “Request Roulette” segment, where you—the audience—help choose the tunes for a part of the show. So come join us on Friday, Feb. 3rd for a fun, family-friendly evening of musically “letting down your hair” (he already has!)
Dr. Michael Braz is an internationally known performer, composer, educator and 2009 Averitt Center Legend in the Arts honoree. For over 50 years, his pianistic and teaching skills—combined with a natural sense of curiosity and fascination—have served to make music and musicianship accessible to children and adults on three continents. As he observes, “when I sit down at a piano, something exhilarating happens—it’s the way I communicate ideas and emotions to others.” Professor Emeritus of Music at Georgia Southern University and the Principal Keyboard with the Savannah Philharmonic, Braz has collaborated in thousands of performances with a host of soloists and musical ensembles.
