George Winston 2022

Mon Dec 19, 2022

Orchestra Hall

George Winston’s expressive, improvisational playing style and mesmerizing presence have made him a winter audience favorite at Orchestra Hall. He has 16 solo piano albums to his credit, including the brand-new NIGHT on RCA Records, featuring the singles Beverly and Hana (A Flower For Your Heart). Winston has carved out a style all his own with influences from jazz to Hawaiian slack key guitar, and he has composed some of the most beloved piano and guitar music of the last four decades—so settle in for a very special evening.
