The Chisholm Trail Arts Council Presents
BRANDON GOLDBERG TRIO
CTAC LIVE CONCERT Nov 30th @ 7:30 p.m.
DUNCAN – Brandon Goldberg, now twelve years old, began to play piano by ear when he was three. Goldberg started by playing the songs he was learning in pre-school on his family’s piano at home. Soon, his parents realized that Brandon had perfect pitch and was able to play anything he heard. Goldberg began to take piano lessons for classical music, but his love and passion for jazz, and the creativity it allows, quickly took over. Now, he enjoys composing his own music and listening to his favorite artists including Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Oscar Peterson, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane.
Goldberg will be providing a free matinee show for area middle school students. This free educational outreach program is one of the ways CTAC Live gives back to the community. “These outreaches are wonderful ways to expose children at early ages to the world of music. And in this case, to see someone their perform on such a high level, we can only hope that it can inspire and touch a student in the crowd in a profound way – to keep working hard, follow your dreams and passion in music.”
On Nov 30th, Brandon Goldberg will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. with accompanying musicians Quincy Davis (drummer) and Lynn Seaton (bass). Davis had an early start in music as well and has been playing drums since he was six years old. He is classically trained with studies from Western Michigan to New York City. With major recordings already under his belt, Davis is currently teaching at the University of Manitoba in Canada. The third musician to round out this trio is Lynn Seaton. Seaton is originally from Tulsa OK and studied music at the University of Oklahoma. Seaton has worked alongside many outstanding musicians and has participated in 125 recording sessions including Grammy Award winning “Diane Schurr and The Count Basie Orchestra”.
Brandon works closely with the Jazz Foundation of America (JFA) and had the honor of performing at the JFA annual Gala - A Great Night in Harlem at the famous Apollo Theater in New York. Brandon has appeared on the Harry Connick Jr. Show, NBC’s Little Big Shots and the Steve Harvey Show. He has also performed at Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center with Monty Alexander, The Apollo Theater, Blue Note Jazz Club in New York and the Litchfield Jazz Festival. He will make his Canadian Debut this April at Bravo Niagara Spring Concert Series.
