Antonio Hart Sextet

Presented by Kente Arts Alliance

Saturday, December 7Doors Open 7:00PM / Show Starts 8:00PM

Hart’s real study of Jazz began at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. There, he studied with Bill Pierce, Andy McGhee, and Joe Viola. The three teachers gave him the foundation he needed to develop into a professional musician.

He made many friends at Berklee, but the most important was Roy Hargrove. They spent three years touring the world and recording Hargrove’s first three records. Hart considers Hargrove to be his brother in life and music. He even used Hargrove on his first recording ‘For the First Time.’

Hart balances his time as a full-time tenured Professor at The Aaron Copland School of Music, Queens College, as well as, traveling on the road with his band, The Dave Holland Big band, and The Dizzy Gillespie Big band. In his off time, he likes to practice martial arts. And listen to other styles of music for inspiration. He is constantly trying to get to higher levels on his horn and in his writing.

Members of the Sextet

Freddie Hendrix, trumpet
Robin Eubanks, trombone
Miki Yamanaka, piano
Alex Ayala, bass
Vince Ector, drums

The Dragon of Polish Hill

Presented by New Hazlett as part of the Community Supported Art Performance Series

The Dragon of Polish Hill tells the story of two neighborhood residents who were destined never to know each other until Stanley Onion, a 115-year-old man with dementia, and Willy James, a rabbit-eared performance artist, are brought together by a chance encounter.

He is the president of the Puppetry Guild of Pittsburgh and holds a BFA in Theatre & Puppetry from West Virginia University. Dave’s collaborator Will Schutze is an artist, songwriter and puppeteer from Austin. He comes from a 40-year-old Texas tradition of marionettes, having cut his teeth at state fairs and massive holiday shows with World on a String puppet theater.
