Dick Conte’s Annual Jazz Piano Scholarship Benefit

Jayn Pettingill | June 10th, 2018

It’s the gift that keeps giving. KCSM’s “Crazy About the Blues” host Kathleen Lawton gave her longtime partner Dick Conte the ultimate Christmas present in 2003: she set up a jazz piano scholarship fund in his name at the California Jazz Conservatory.

For fourteen years, Dick has celebrated his birthday by awarding a scholarship to further a gifted pianist’s study at the CJC.

Join Dick and his quartet for a great evening of jazz and cake. It’ll be a sweet way to spend your evening, culminating with the  announcement of the scholarship recipient and their performance with the group.

Dick Conte’s Quartet features saxophonist Steve Heckman, bassist Steve Webber, and drummer Akira Tana. The evening’s performance will be dedicated to the memory of Dick’s longtime drummer and friend, Bill Moody.

When? June 16, Saturday at 8 pm. $20.00

Where? California Jazz Conservatory 2087 Addison St.
Berkeley CA 94704
