Amerika Haus e. V. NRW cordially invites you to a Christmas Concert with Steinway artist
Robin Meloy Goldsby and Billy Test (WDR Big Band)
Robin Goldsby’s humorous, poignant holiday stories—accompanied by Billy Test’s musical romps through a variety of American standards and jazz renditions of seasonal melodies—promise a sparkling, original perspective on Christmas traditions. Toe-tapping, laugh-out-loud funny, elegant and eloquent, Test and Goldsby deliver a one-hour program that will launch you into the holiday with a song in your heart.
Robin Meloy Goldsby's career has taken her from Pittsburgh to posh New York City venues and exclusive resorts, and on to the European castles and concert stages where she now performs. Robin, a Steinway Artist, has seven recordings to her name and has appeared, as an author and pianist, on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered and Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland. She is the author of Piano Girl; Rhythm; Waltz of the Asparagus People; and Manhattan Road Trip.
Pennsylvania native Billy Test is an acclaimed New York City pianist, composer, arranger, and educator, currently holding the solo piano position in NRW’s GRAMMY-award winning WDR Big Band. His multi-faceted music has been inspired by many styles. Like many of his piano heroes—Bill Evans, Fred Hersch and Richie Beirach—Test’s music is rooted in the jazz tradition yet demonstrates a strong classical influence.
Free entrance. The event will be held in English.
