Naomi Nakanishi Live at The Kreeger

Jazz at The Kreeger shares music across the city.

In collaboration with Elijah Jamal Balbed, The Kreeger Museum presents Jazz at The Kreeger, a series that supports and spotlights the wealth of musical talent in our metropolitan area.

Naomi Nakanishi will be performing on March 16, 2024 from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Naomi Nakanishi is a dynamic pianist, improviser, composer, inviting listeners with unique melodies, sonorous harmonies and unconventional phrasing. Their work aims to reconstruct, experiment and interact with sounds influenced by their comprehensive background in Black American Music, indie-folk tunes, and classical piano. They have performed at major festivals such as the Rochester International Jazz Festival, Panama Jazz Festival and the national Jazz Education Network Conference with both big bands and small groups.
