This show, underwritten by Sandy & Ron Kauffman, features a great evening of jazz piano and complimentary dessert and bubbly, with all proceeds benefitting the Avalon Foundation!
Stephanie Trick, a native of St. Louis, is a rising star of stride piano and Paolo Alderighi, her husband, is one of Italy’s leading jazz pianists. They have earned widespread success performing as a duo across the US, in Europe, and in Asia, winning the acclaim of classic jazz critics and jazz fans.
Blending impeccable technique and mature musicality with humor and showmanship, Stephanie and Paolo combine the energy and joy of classic jazz with the depth and purity of classical music.
“If you're ‘gonna take a sentimental journey,’ we strongly suggest you do so with this talented duo! Stride piano enthusiasts are in for a treat as you hear and see Paolo and Stephanie perfect the "four hands" stride method of playing together on one piano. As both soloists and a duo, they hit their stride with the perfect combination of professionally trained jazz pianists and playful entertainers, making for a truly magical evening you won't want to miss and surely won't forget!” Sandy & Ron Kaufman
