Coffeehouse Series presents Pianist Jason Farnham
Darke County Center for the Arts will present “An Evening of Piano with
Jason Farnham” at The Coffee Pot in downtown Greenville on Thursday,
March 2; the concert, part of DCCA's Coffeehouse Series, begins at 7
p.m. According to DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins, the
composer/pianist has been dubbed “Schroeder” by his fans, after the
piano-playing character found in the Peanuts comic strip. “Jason
Farnham delights audiences with his wide-ranging repertoire, some of
which is skillfully played on a toy piano, accounting for the Schroeder
comparison,” Mr. Rawlins explained. “Jason's show includes contemporary
romantic songs, some blues, stride piano sounds, and classical music
with a modern twist, along with witty Victor Borge-style comedy antics
and clever interaction with his audience,” the DCCA official stated.
DCCA's Coffeehouse presentations offer high-quality artists performing
in an intimate social atmosphere where food and drink are also
available. DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan says that this casual
format will enhance audience enjoyment of Jason Farnham's performance.
“Jason has been described as a combination of Jerry Lee Lewis, Victor
Borge, and Beethoven on steroids who sometimes plays the piano while
lying upside-down, which should provide a fascinating and exciting
evening for music lovers of all ages,” she commented.
DCCA's Coffeehouse Series is sponsored by The Andersons, Inc., EB Real
Estate, Julie and Tom Graber, Eileen and Steve Litchfield, and Rodney
Oda. The Ohio Arts Council helps fund this program with state tax
dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and
cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. DCCA also receives operating

funding from the Ketrow Foundation and Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust
Fund. DCCA membership contributions also help support this show.
