Soka Performing Arts Center presents

Liz Story/Lisa Downing/Kori Carothers

Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 8 p.m.

Solo piano artists Liz Story, Lisa Downing, and Kori Linae Carothers will each perform individually for an evening of inspiring acoustic piano.

Liz Story’s improvisational style has led to four Grammy nominations and embraces jazz, folk, pop, and classical genres.

Lisa Downing was an avowed "metal-head" until hearing the solo piano recordings of Keith Jarrett and George Winston proved to be a breakthrough for her that inspired her to get serious about composing.

Kori Linae Carothers, discovered to be deaf in her left ear at the age of five, was constantly told she would never become a musician. Undeterred, she is an acclaimed pianist with four albums to her credit.
