JaFsoanrnham Chipola Artist Series Welcomes One-Of-A-Kind Pianist
The Chipola Artist Series welcomes piano extraordinaire Jason Farnham, Thursday, Jan.
18, at 7 p.m., in the Center for the Arts.
In describing Farnham, one writer said, “Take Jerry Lee Lewis, add some Victor Borge,
Beethoven on steroids, garnish with Schroeder from Peanuts, throw it all in a blender, and
what comes out is an unmistakable Jason Farnham show.”
Fans have dubbed him “Schroeder” because of his witty piano comedy antics and the
clever way he interacts with the audience. The show includes contemporary piano, jazz, bossa
nova, blues, stride piano, and classical with a modern twist. Jason is always looking for a way
to take a classic and turn it on its ear, including playing upside down Amadeus-style. Learn
more at www.jasonfarnham.com.
Tickets - $20 for adults and $10 for ages 18 and under, and $5 for Chipola students and
employees - are on sale at the Center Box Office. Call 718-2420 or visit www.chipola.edu/
boxoffice. The remaining Artist Series event is The Young Irelanders, March 13.
