Lynchburg native Isaac Williams, will return home to perform with his jazz trio, Trinity, at Old City Cemetery Chapel on Sunday, March 10 at 3pm. Isaac will be joined by Chace Washington on drums and Mike Pratt on stand-up bass in a one-hour concert of straight-ahead jazz.
Williams, Washington and Pratt are all students at Shenandoah University and part of the nationally-recognized Shenandoah Conservatory Jazz Ensemble. This Ensemble is directed by Craig Fraedrich, who for 31 years was the jazz trumpet soloist with The U.S. Army Blues, one of the nation’s premier full-time jazz ensembles. The trio members are also fortunate to study and perform under the tutelage of acclaimed professors Robert Larson, Harrison Endowed Chair in Piano and Director of Jazz Studies, and Mark Meadows, acclaimed jazz composer, pianist, and vocalist.
Straight-ahead jazz is very much a quiet, easy-listening style of music. The concert program will include old favorites by Duke Ellington (“Take the A Train”), Cole Porter (“Night and Day”), and more.
