San Francisco's Home for Great Concerts since 1970

Dennis Edwards

After receiving standing ovations at his last two Old First Concerts, pianist Dennis Edwards returns to play a tour de force of piano music covering genres from popular, classical, jazz and ragtime to his own original piano works. Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Simon & Garfunkel and Stephen Sondheim are just a few of the composers he will be featuring in the colorful and dynamic piano program. After hearing Dennis play, National Public Radio’s Piano Jazz host Marian McPartland said “Wow!” “I can’t believe you play the way you do!” Always entertaining, informative and fun, Dennis goes far beyond the music by inviting the audience into the program and including interesting stories and anecdotes which make the music really enjoyable.
