Jazz Legend Pat Metheny to give workshop on Friday

27 Apr

The School of Music is thrilled to welcome internationally renowned guitarist Pat Metheny for a Q and A session on Friday, April 30, noon to 1 p.m. in Brechemin Auditorium.

A 17-time Grammy award winner, Metheny is a versatile musician almost nearly without peer on any instrument. Over the years, he has performed with artists as diverse as Steve Reich, Ornette Coleman, Herbie Hancock, Milton Nascimento, and David Bowie, to name but a few. His 20-year songwriting association with keyboardist Lyle Mays has been compared to the Lennon/McCartney and Ellington/Strayhorn partnerships by critics and listeners alike.

Metheny’s body of work includes compositions for solo guitar, small ensembles, electric and acoustic instruments, large orchestras, and ballet pieces, with settings ranging from modern jazz to rock to classical.

Whatever your musical interests, don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a “behind the music” experience with one of the brightest stars in jazz.
