Chipola Artist Series Welcomes One-of-a-Kind Pianist

January 22, 2018

Jason Farnham

MARIANNA—The Chipola Artist Series welcomes piano extraordinaire Jason Farnham, Thursday, Jan. 18, at 7 p.m., in the Center for the Arts.

In describing Farnham, one writer said, “Take Jerry Lee Lewis, add some Victor Borge, Beethoven on steroids, garnish with Schroeder from Peanuts, throw it all in a blender, and what comes out is an unmistakable Jason Farnham show.”

Fans have dubbed him “Schroeder” because of his witty piano comedy antics and the clever way he interacts with the audience. The show includes contemporary piano, jazz, bossa nova, blues, stride piano, and classical with a modern twist. Jason is always looking for a way to take a classic and turn it on its ear, including playing upside down Amadeus-style. Learn more at www.jasonfarnham.com.

Tickets - $20 for adults and $10 for ages 18 and under, and $5 for Chipola students and employees - are on sale at the Center Box Office. Call 718-2420 or visit www.chipola.edu/boxoffice. The remaining Artist Series event is The Young Irelanders, March 13.
