Winter Solstice Music

Fred Johnson, World Renowned Jazz Musician, Singer, and Song-writer with the Amazing team of Kevin Wilder, Pianist, Barry Skeete, percussionist andCatherine Costa, flutist graced the Octagon Arts Center on the 20 December 2008.

The Octagon Arts Center was once again thrilled to present Fred and Friends in concert to celebrate the Holiday Season.

It was an amazing evening as these talented Musicians created on the spot improvisations of new and old favorites.

The LISTENING SKILLS of these superb Musicians allow them to create together, works that fit together seamlessly just as if they had spent hours reproducing the exact notes they way a classical symphony would. They are such a wonderful example of “Living in the NOW”, creating from “nothing” (well nothing but their years of training, practice and experiences, that is!) and Living Life on Life’s terms!

Thank you Fred, Kevin, Barry and Cathy!!! Let’s do it again soon!
