Stefan Scaggiari, Guests Present Classical/Jazz Concert at Johns Hopkins

The Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events will present a classical/jazz concert with famed classical/jazz pianist and composer Stefan Scaggiari and The Stefan Scaggiari Trio, featuring Billie Holiday Vocal Competition Winner Navasha Daya Boxley, at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 10, in Shriver Hall on the University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

Scaggiari, an Irish-Italian-American pianist/composer/arranger/recording artist, is best-known to local FM radio listeners as a National Public Radio regular on WJHU-FM in Baltimore. His talents have taken him from white-tie classical performances with Aaron Copeland and the National Symphony to the Monterey Jazz Festival, the Kennedy Center with Dizzy Gillespie, Baltimore's Artscape, the Rotterdam Jazz Festival, television appearances, concerts in Europe, South America, Japan, and the White House. Classically trained at the Eastman School of Music, where he received his bachelor's of music degree and the performer's certificate, he also studied with Leon Fleisher at the Peabody Conservatory, where he received his master's of music degree.

First-place Billie Holiday Vocal Competition winner for 1998, Navasha Daya Boxley, received her musical education at the Cleveland School of the Arts and at Morgan State University, where she also sang in the Morgan State University Choir under its famed conductor, Dr. Nathan Carter. Boxley has performed with Jessye Norman, Denise Graves, Robert Shaw and Roland Carter, and she was cited by the Impressarial of Spain for her solo in Porgy and Bess.

Tickets are $16 general admission; $13 senior citizen; $10 full-time student with ID. Group discounts are available. For more information, call the Office of Special Events at 410-516-7157.
