Wayne Center for the Arts presents pianist Gregg Kallor in concert. Gregg Kallor is a composer and pianist whose music fuses the classical and jazz traditions he loves into a new, deeply personal language. Opera News calls Kallor "a rising star in the music world" with "a singular compositional voice." The New York Times writes: "At home in both jazz and classical forms, [Kallor] writes music of unaffected emotional directness. Leavened with flashes of oddball humor, his works succeed in drawing in the listener - not as consumer or worshipful celebrant, but in a spirit of easygoing camaraderie." In 2018, Kallor was named the Classical Recording Foundation's Composer of the Year for the second consecutive year.
In the fall of 2023 Kallor’s fully staged opera “Frankenstein” premiered with the Arizona Opera. In addition, his work “Tell Tale Heart” will be performed under the auspices of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center at Alicy Tully hall in New York.
