Summer Series Concert: Gerry Johnston

7:00pm EDT August 13
Rogers Center for the Arts

Jazz & Popular Standards with a Classical Touch

Free event

Combining his love of both styles, Gerry Johnston has made a particular specialty of performing selections from “The American Songbook” on solo classical guitar. Composers of theses great jazz and popular ‘standards’ include Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Ann Ronnell, Richard Rogers, Henry Mancini and a host of others.

Timeless and always fresh sounding, these tunes are widely known and loved across
generational lines. His original  arrangements and improvisations are done
in a classical style with emphasis on maintaining a clear and uncluttered
melodic line. He likes to think of this approach as “jazz and popular standards
with a classical touch”.
