JFK Library Hosts Piano Iconoclast Elew on Thursday, September 16 in Boston




Honoring the commitment to the arts of President and Mrs. Kennedy during the Kennedy Administration, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum is featuring piano wunderkind Elew to showcase a unique style of solo performance he calls Rockjazz.

The free concert takes place on Thursday, September 16, 2010,  from 8:00 - 9:00 p.m. at the JFK Library, located at Columbia Point in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood.  Reservations are suggested.

Winner of the Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition in 1999, Elew, whose full name is Eric Lewis, has toured the world with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, and has performed at the White House for President and Mrs. Obama.
