“Richard Lopez with Strings” at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church

Westerville, OH—The Otterbein University String Orchestra will host pianist Richard Lopez for a program titled “Richard Lopez with Strings” at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 18, at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, 100 E. Schrock Road. This event is free and open to the public.

The orchestra will collaborate with Lopez for an evening of music that embraces a wide swath of jazz history. Lopez will premiere a new work for strings and jazz piano by composer Christian Berg, the bassist for the Columbus Jazz Orchestra. Herbie Hancock’s release of Gershwin’s World in 2000 included a reimagining of his Lullaby for Strings performed with The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. Lopez will deliver his interpretation of that inspired collaboration. Two of Morton Gould’s sumptuous spirituals for strings, a couple of swing era standards and some jazz genre pieces will round out the program.
