A 90th Birthday Celebration w. The Oscar Peterson Quartet!

Saturday, April 18, 2015

Hi friends!

This past week, the TD Toronto Jazz Festival announced their 2015 summer line-up, and with that came some exciting news for our family.

Thanks to Patrick Taylor and Josh Grossman, the Oscar Peterson Quartet will be playing Toronto once again! Veteran members Ulf Wakenius and Alvin Queen will be joined by the great Christian McBride on June 18th to celebrate Dad’s 90th birthday. Taking his seat at the piano will be our dear friend, powerhouse pianist Robi Botos! I am also happy to say that I will be acting as narrator for this special evening, and in-between music will be sharing personal photos as well as memories from my childhood, highlights from Dad’s career, and special behind-the-scenes moments from on the road.

Mom and I could not be more thrilled that this show is taking place and that these wonderful musicians are coming to celebrate Dad with an evening of music and memories. 

This show will sell out very fast so be sure to get your tickets now!
