  1. Thank you for thinking of us. Our musicians have very busy schedules and our artistic director secure our dates many months in advance. The Sammons Center for the Arts is geared towards patrons with mobility issues.

    Very best!

  2. Dennis, We really enjoyed meeting you and your lovely wife, Jill, at the show. We posted a great pic of you , your wife and your friends, Alan and Rita, on our Facebook page. Our FB name is Dallas Jazz Piano Society.

    Thanks so much for spending some time with us during your visit to Dallas from London!

  3. Brad Williams put together a blissful , nostalgic evening with 20 years of of Richard Rodgers. Thanks to Brad Williams. On piano, Jonathan Fisher on a Bass and the irrepressible Andrew Griffith on drums. Memorable.

  4. My students and I attended DJPS on April 9, and we learned about the Keys for Kids scholarships. I have two students at Quintanilla Middle School, Beatrice Reyes and Ceci Salas, who are interested in piano lessons. How do we apply?

  5. Another big thank you to Brad Williams piano, Gavin Kelso bass and Andrew Griffith drums for giving us a wonderful evening with Jerome Kern. Amazingly popular music spanning decades. So many pieces I have loved all my life, some of which I didn’t realize were Kern’s. Thank you all for bringing back my “Kern” memories! Ingrid Burgan. January 12, 2017
