Good Vibes at HSU with Vibraphonist Ted Piltzecker

 Renowned jazz vibraphonist and composer Ted Piltzecker comes to Fulkerson Recital Hall at HSU for a solo performance on Saturday February 8.

 With three successful solo albums and another with his group Steppe Forward, Piltzecker has won praise for his originality and flair. One jazz magazine described his solo album Standing Alone as “43 minutes [of ] expressive grace.” 

 A former director of the Aspen Music Festival, Piltzecker plays in concerts and festivals around the world. “Ted is not just a great jazz vibraphone player, he is an artist,” said HSU Music professor Eugene Novotney. “He plays with a full sense of the history of his art form, but he always sounds current and fresh. He is an amazing musician!”

Piltzecker will be on campus for several days working with HSU music students, so his concert may feature "special guests." 

 Ted Piltzecker performs on the vibraphone at 8 p.m. on Saturday February 8 in the Fulkerson Recital Hall on the HSU campus. $10/$5 students and seniors, from HSU Box Office (826-3928) or at the door. A Guest Artist concert produced by HSU Music Department.
