African American Weekend - Art of the Piano

Presented by Art of the Piano at Memorial Hall OTR, Cincinnati OH

Jul 15 - 17 2022
African American Weekend - Art of the Piano

Three young and gifted composer/arranger/pianists are in Cincinnati for a series of concerts flowing between old and new, written and improv, classical and jazz. Jeremy Ajani Jordan: July 15; Mikael Darmanie: July 16; Aaron Diehl: July 17.

At age 17, Aaron Diehl was a finalist in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Essentially Ellington competition, where he was noticed by Wynton Marsalis. Soon after, Diehl was invited to tour Europe with the Wynton Marsalis Septet.  Diehl performs at Memorial Hall on July 17 at 2:00 pm.
Critically acclaimed, “a clear technical virtuoso”, “a rare talent”, and “a true Wunderkind,” Chicago born Jeremy Jordan burst onto the music scene at age 9 playing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in a live televised performance. Jordan went on to appear on the acclaimed radio program From The Top and From The Top: Live from Carnegie Hall performing Liszt. Since then Jordan has made his solo Carnegie Hall debut performing Chopin, Liszt, Schubert, and Wagner.  Jordan performs at Werner Recital Hall on July 15 at 7:00 pm.
As a soloist, Mikael Darmanie has performed throughout the Americas, Europe, Africa, Russia and the Caribbean. Recent festival appearances have included: The Weil Institute at Carnegie, Trinity Wall Street, Prototype, Bang on a Can Marathon, Close Encounters With Music, Berkshire High Peaks Festival, Cape Cod Symphony Nth Degree, Pianofest in the Hamptons, the Mozarteum, Mainly Mozart, and L’Acadèmie de Musique de Sion. Darmanie performs at Werner Recital Hall on July 16 at 7:00 pm.
