A Look to the Past: Jazz and the Norton Simon Museum’s Modern Collection
- 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
- Greg Reitan Trio
Walter Hopps was considered one of the most innovative curators of contemporary art. In 1963, at age 31, he became the youngest museum director in the United States when he took the helm at the Pasadena Art Museum. Pianist and Steinway artist Greg Reitan and his trio (Jack Daro, bass, and Dean Koba, drums) present an evening of original compositions and music by notable jazz composers. The concert explores common themes and provides insight into the work of artists promoted and curated by Hopps, including Emerson Woelffer, John Altoon, Larry Bell and others.
