Jazz violin virtuoso Zach Brock & The Magic Number
TICKETS: $12/$10 students
One of the most virtuosic and emotive voices of contemporary jazz violin, Zach Brock has followed A path which embraces not only jazz, but also classical, world, and popular music.
The Magic Number, Zach’s first recording as leader since 2007, distinguishes itself immediately through its unusual instrumentation: an acoustic trio that counterbalances the absence of a chordal instrument with the addition of wordless vocal harmonies, pitched percussion, and extended instrumental techniques. It is the first recording of Zach’s to feature his own compositions alongside classic and modern jazz standards and it was funded entirely by fans’ donations made through the micro-funding website Kickstarter.

William Feasley, guitar; Yeon Jee Sohn, oboe
William Feasley was the first guitarist to be awarded the Peabody Conservatory's coveted Artist Diploma.. Selected to play for Andrés Segovia at the master's historic last class at the University of Southern California in 1986, he was later featured on the CBS special Eulogy of Segovia. He has four critically acclaimed discs on the Sonora label.
Hailed by the Washington Asia Press for her “perfectly delivered” performance, Yeon Jee Sohn’s dynamic career as an oboist and English Horn player spans solo, chamber, and orchestral performance.
She received her degrees in oboe performance from Seoul National University (BM), the Peabody Conservatory (MM) and the University of Maryland (DMA), where she studied with Mark Hill.
