NPR jazz show features Eastman pianist

Caramia

Tony Caramia, Eastman School of Music professor of piano, was a featured guest on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz, National Public Radio's award-winning and long-running jazz series.

The hour-long show, made available to NPR affiliate stations nationwide on May 6, will air locally on WXXI-AM 1370 at 10 p.m., Monday, May 12. (Outside the local area, the show can be heard via the internet on www.wxxi.org or by checking the airdate with NPR-affiliated stations.)

Piano Jazz showcases both acclaimed artists and up-and-coming performers sharing music and memories with their legendary host and jazz pianist, Marian McPartland--who recently performed at the Eastman Theatre with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra.

McPartland has had a long affiliation with both Rochester and the Eastman School and in 1999 created a concert series with Eastman's jazz department that showcases the rising stars of jazz piano in Kilbourn Hall.

"I was deeply honored to be asked by Marian to participate in her show," says Caramia, who directs the piano pedagogy program and its class piano program. "The entire experience was delightful, exciting, and exhilarating."
