Rooted in Oakland
Friday, March 23, 2018, 8 pm
Oakland native Kev Choice is a classically-trained pianist who uses wit and creative lyricism to bring a positive and inspiring message to his unique blend of jazz, R&B, and soul. Working with artists such as Ms. Lauryn Hill and Michael Franti, Choice has toured all over the world. Here, the symphony has commissioned a new work by Kev, to be played alongside Schubert’s exuberant 5th symphony after opening with a gem of an overture by George Frederick Bristow.
