JAZZ PIANIST MARIAN MCPARTLAND PERFORMS TONIGHT

Jazz pianist Marian McPartland and her trio will perform at 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 30 for Old Dominion University's F. Ludwig Diehn Concert Series. The Performance will be in Chandler Recital Hall of the Diehn Fine and Performing Arts Center. Tickets may be purchased in advance or at the door.

McPartland, widely acknowledged as one of the world's most skilled practitioners of the jazz piano, has been a force on the jazz scene since the 1950s. She has recorded more than 60 albums. In addition to her touring schedule, she has hosted "Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz" since its inception in 1978. The award winning series is the longest running cultural program on NPR. From her earliest Music Hall performances to her recent sold-out concerts, McPartland's refined piano style and subtle humor have graced the world's stages for the past 65 years.

Tickets for the ODU performance are $25 for general admission and $10 for students with valid ID. Tickets may be purchased at the Arts and Letters Box Office in the lobby of the University Theatre, located in the Health Sciences Building on Hampton Blvd. between 46th Street and 47th Street, or by calling 683-5305.
