Harford Community College presents an Evening of Jazz with the Roni Ben-Hur Quartet Friday, April 13, at 8 p.m. in the College's Joppa Hall.
Guitarist Roni Ben-Hur has performed on tour in many countries and last year appeared in the U.S., France, Belgium, Holland, Brazil and Croatia.
In partnership with Brazilian bassist Nilson Matta, he released his eighth CD, "Mojave," simultaneously in the U.S. and Europe, gaining accolades from JazzTimes, Jazziz, and The Columbia Tribune.
His second major educational release, the DVD "Chordability," should be an important new educational work for aspiring and mid-career guitarists. It follows his popular "Talk Jazz Guitar," which was published in 2003.
Tickets for an Evening of Jazz are $10 for adults and $1 for youth and are available at the HCC Ticket Office in the Chesapeake Center or by calling 443-412-2211 or at the door. Reasonable accommodations for a documented disability may be requested by calling Disability Support Services, 443-412-2402, in advance of participation. A minimum notice of two weeks may be needed to provide some accommodations.
