Richard White Trio
June 19, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM EDT
Richard White is one of the most dynamic pianists and composers in the Charleston area. A native of St. Louis, Missouri, he studied classical piano from age 7-17 and was introduced to jazz by his father before high school. Richard has performed in Victoria, British Columbia and recently completed a successful international jazz tour. He has opened for many famous artists such as Branford Marsalis, Will Downing, Brian McKnight and Alex Bugnon. He has played locally with the Charleston Jazz Orchestra, the Charlton Singleton Quintet, and the Charleston Symphony that featured vocalist Ellis Hall. Richard will be joined by Brett Belanger on bass and David Patterson on Drums, two of Charleston’s finest jazz musicians, to kick off our ‘Art of Jazz’ series at the Gibbes Museum!
