Cornell Concert Series presents Fred Hersch. This legendary jazz innovator and eight-time Grammy® nominated pianist and composer blazes into Cornell for a must-hear concert event! As a solo pianist, composer, bandleader, and theatrical conceptualist, Fred Hersch lives up to the praise of The New York Times, which, in a featured Sunday Magazine piece, aptly declared him “singular among the trailblazers of their art, a largely unsung innovator of this borderless, individualistic jazz – a jazz for the 21st century.” Hersch opens the 2016-17 season with a solo performance in Barnes Hall.

Adult: $25 • Students: $17

After a stunning performance in 2015 with Pierre-Laurent Aimard, the Cornell Concert Series is thrilled to have Tamara Stefanovich back for a solo piano performance in late 2016. Bristling with dexterous wizardry and colossal energy, Stefanovich performs at the world’s major concert venues and frequently takes part in performance projects with dancers, actors, and DJs. Her concert will feature modern works by Ligeti, Messiaen, Nicolaou, and more.

General Admission: $30 • Students: $17

Cornell Concert Series presents the VIDA Guitar Quartet. Since forming in 2007, the quartet has performed to critical acclaim in major American and European venues. VIDA’s ability to “conjure up an orchestral palette of color and effects” (Classic FM ) combined with their “exquisite tonal and dynamic control” has firmly established them as a passionate and masterful ensemble that sparkles with “vitality and spontaneity” (Acoustic). VIDA performs a program of lush arrangements ranging from traditional British folk songs to Bach to Gershwin.

General Admission: $28 • Students: $17
