Ward Virts Concert Series Features Jones-Holton-Faulkner Jazz Trio November 11
The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) invites the public to enjoy the Jones-Holton-Faulkner Jazz Trio this month in the second performance of 2018-2019 Ward Virts Concert Series. The Nov. 11 concert will feature jazz greats Jim Holton on piano, Tony “TNT” Jones on bass and Justin Faulkner on drums performing a variety of tunes.
The Ward Virts Concert Series celebrates the life and work of Ward Virts, a talented Southern Maryland pianist who died suddenly in 1993. A group of Ward’s friends and classmates conceived the Ward Virts Piano Project to bring the love of life, beauty and music that Ward embodied to a new generation of Southern Maryland students, performers and appreciative audiences. The concerts are performed on a world-class handcrafted Bosendorfer Grand Piano, a gift to CSM’s Prince Frederick Campus from the Ward Virts Piano Project.
The Ward Virts Concert Series is presented by sponsors Dr. and Mrs. Henry Virts, Eric and Rané Franklin, Mary Anna Phillips, Stovy and Anne Brown and the CSM Foundation. Grants provided by the Arts Council of Calvert County and Maryland State Arts Council also make the performances possible.
The series takes place in the Multipurpose Room 104 in Building B on the Prince Frederick Campus. All performances begin at 3 p.m. Doors open at 2:30 p.m. No tickets or reservations are needed. Concerts are free.
