Jeff Crompton Trio

The Wayne-O-Rama concert series premiere event will be held Friday, Dec. 16, at 8 p.m.

This unique show presented by the Shaking Ray Levi Society features the sax/bass/drums jazz outfit Jeff Crompton Trio of Atlanta/Chattanooga and the toy piano virtuoso Robert Fleitz of NYC. 

No mere novelty, the toy piano is an instrument that has been used in compositions by noted 20th century composers John Cage and George Crumb, and Fleitz will demonstrate its versatility, playing selections by Pulitzer Prize-winner Julia Wolfe, Puerto Rican-born composer Angélica Negrón, Molly Joyce, Monica Pearce, Olivia Kieffer and Andrew Krahn, and he will perform the world premiere of Jeff Crompton's "Sonatina for Toy Piano."

Tickets $12 for adults and $8 for students.  Wayne-O-Rama is at 1800 Rossvile Ave., #108.
