The David Esleck Trio will give a performance of jazz music at Cherry Hill on Sunday, July 14.
Dr. Esleck performed solo at the piano in 2018 and is returning with his trio by popular demand. The program will begin at 3 p.m., and admissions will be taken at the door. This is the fourth annual Edwina Rooker Endowed Concert, established in honor of the late Warrenton resident and longtime friend of the Cherry Hill Historical Foundation.
Esleck, adjunct professor of music at the University of Richmond, includes performing, composing, producing and educating in his life’s work. He appears frequently in concerts and recitals, both as a piano soloist and with his jazz trio. Esleck’s recordings have been nominated for both Grammy and Indie awards, and he has performed for presidents, heads of state, CEOs, Hollywood stars, and with well-known musical groups. His compositions, both jazz and classical, are heard in concerts, films and on television. A trained composer, Esleck holds bachelor’s, masters and doctoral degrees in the discipline.
Musical arrangements for piano, cello, and percussion will be announced during the program.
Admission charges are $10 for adults, $5 for students, and no charge for children 12 and below.
A reception will be held in the historic plantation house following the performance.
