Andy Milne and Dapp Theory Bring Jazz to CU's Arts and Lectures Series

September 16, 2013

Innovative Jazz pianist Andy Milne and his band Dapp Theory will perform at 7:30 pm in Cheyney University's Marian Anderson Auditorium on Thursday, September 19, as part of CU’s Arts and Lectures series. Milne has been making waves in the music industry ever since his debut as a member in Steve Coleman’s Five Elements in 1992.  Six years later, Milne founded Dapp Theory to reportedly tell passionate stories, promote peace and inspire collective responsibility towards uplifting the human spiritual condition.  He has gone on to find success in both solo and collaborative projects including his critically acclaimed 2009 album Where is Pannonica? with Benoît Delbecq.  

The Canadian jazzman who once studied with the legendary jazz pianist Oscar Peterson is now an adjunct professor at New York University and The New School University. He is currently working on orchestral compositions for the American Composers Orchestra and the international, multidisciplinary project, Strings and Serpents.   His appearance at Cheyney is free and open to the public.   www.andymilne.com

Her exhibit runs through October 18.  Gallery hours are Monday and Wednesday from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm and Tuesday from 1:00 pm to 2:00 p.m.  That is also free and open to the public.
