Nevada City, Calif. November 1, 2016 – Ludi Hinrichs will perform a solo concert on piano, trombone and other instruments on Wednesday, November 30th at the Miners Foundry Cultural Center at 7:30 pm. The concert will be recorded for a future album and will be a exploration of the recent loss of his wife and his musical emergence into the heart of renewal. The Stone Hall at the Miners Foundry is especially vibrant when the Estonia grand piano fills the room. 

“The experiences of the last year and a half since the passing of my wife, Karen, have had a profound effect on me. I would like to share the passion, healing and emergence resulting in these new compositions that have come through while sitting at the piano or with other instruments I “talk” through.

The works run the full spectrum from shock and despair to the feeling of being fully alive and ecstatic, reflecting both the inner and outer shifts and changes which were inevitably experienced.

I feel great reverence for this deep process and gratitude for my wife, Karen, and all she brought to our lives.” 

Catherine Stifter, Capitol Public Radio producer of Saving the Sierra says of Hinrichs: 

“Ludi is of course a musical genius. He composed a whole suite of music for a radio documentary I created a decade ago. His sonic vision made the show magical. So much of of that music was created in the moment, in collaboration, in response to stories. I can’t wait for this show. Thank you Ludi for pouring your heart out.”

Hinrichs is a jazz composer/performer from Nevada City who has performed with Terry Riley, Gary Snyder and Chuck Berry. He is inspired by pianists Keith Jarrett, Thelonious Monk, and the Serbian composer Goran Brejovic.  He leads his own groups, Chicken Bonz, Kairos, and The Ludi Hinrichs quintet. 

Tickets are available at the door, adults: $20, students & children under 18: $10. For more information visit, or call (530) 292-3112.
