Piano Starts Here: The Gospel of Thomas A. Dorsey

September 16 @ 7:30 pm

After youthful blues collaborations with the likes of Ma Rainey and Tampa Red, Thomas A. Dorsey turned inward to become the foremost composer of Gospel music. His songs, through popular renditions by Mahalia Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and so many more, are etched deeply into the American musical consciousness.
The Piano Starts Here series highlights the work of some of the most prolific and talented composers and pianists to have ever tackled the instrument. Each of the performances brings together Seattle’s finest pianists to perform the works of the artist selected for that evening on the Royal Room’s Steinway B grand piano.
Featuring: Jack Sele; Nelda Swiggett; Alex Guilbert; Darrius Willrich

This event is presented in collaboration with KNKX Public Radio (88.5 FM).
