Jazz Duo Performs Wednesday at Sylvester for “The Musicians Will See You Now” Concert Series
UHealth will present the second in a series of musical performances by students from the Frost School of Music on Wednesday, April 24, at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Freshman guitarist Jonah Udall from Rochester, New York, and upright bassist Daniel Montgomery, a sophomore from Berkeley, California, will perform in the Sylvester courtyard from 12:30 to 1 p.m., and then relocate to the second-floor lobby from 1 to 1:30 p.m.
Intended to gladden the hearts and brighten the days of patients and families who visit the medical campus, as well as faculty and staff who work here, the concerts are part of “The Musicians Will See You Now” series, which Joe Natoli, Interim Chief Operating Officer at the Miller School, hopes to make a regular feature on the Miller School campus.
“This is a wonderfully unique program that we think will add to the level of personal care provided at each of the UHealth facilities,” Natoli said.
The series began Monday, April 22, at University of Miami Hospital with a lunchtime performance by a talented quartet of saxophonists. The mellifluous notes from soprano saxophonist Joe D’Aleo, alto saxophonist Esneider Valencia, both Doctor of Musical Arts candidates, tenor saxophonist Frank Capoferri, a senior, and baritone saxophonist Lewis Jones, a first-year master’s student, caught the ears of many passersby in the UMH lobby, who couldn’t help but pause to listen.
Future concerts will be announced when scheduled.
