The Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center is presenting "Fred Hersch: A Solo Piano Concert in Memory of Loraine Stern," Monday, April 13th at 7:30PM at the David and Dorothea Garfield Theatre. A select member of jazz’s piano pantheon, Fred Hersch is a pervasively influential creative force who has shaped the music’s course over more than three decades. A solo performance by Hersch is an elegant, pensive and playful invitation to explore the possibilities of both the instrument and the song. Tickets can be purchased here.
