N.C. Symphony Summerfest: Gershwin & Jazz with Joey Alexander

When: Fri., June 3, 7:30 p.m. 2016

Indonesian jazz pianist Joey Alexander has an unrivaled origin story about playing a Thelonious Monk tune by ear the first time he touched a piano. After hearing him in 2014, Wynton Marsalis brought him to New York. This year, at twenty-three, he earned a Grammy nomination. Here, he’ll play alongside the N.C. Symphony. They’ll do some Gershwin, and his trio will play a few originals and, most likely, some Monk. —Dan Ruccia
