The Grand presents The Rob Landes Trio, 3/18
On Sunday, March 18, 2018, The Grand 1894 Opera House presents THE ROB LANDES TRIO - THE FABULOUS 50s. From "Sha Boom" to "Chances Are," The Rob Landes Trio returns to The Grand with their musical journey through the decade that featured Elvis, Little Richard, and Chuck Berry alongside Frank Sinatra, Johnny Mathis, and Roger Williams.
Rob Landes began studying the piano at the age of three and made his "debut" on the Art Linkletter House Party program at the age of four. This appearance was greeted with great applause and kudos from Mr. Linkletter as well as Tommy Dorsey who was on the same broadcast. A native Houstonian, his playing has taken him from the United States and Canada, to Norway and many parts of Europe. Landes is widely known as a pianist, organist, harpist, arranger, conductor and published composer, with 16
CDs to his credit. He has been the Organist and Artist-in-Residence at St. Luke's United Methodist Church since 1996. The Rob Landes Trio is well known for performances in concert at Jones Hall, The Wortham Theatre, The Tower Theatre, The Houston Jazz Festival, and Galveston's Grand 1894 Opera House. They appeared weekly for three years on Channel 13's Good Morning Houston. This performance is sponsored in part by National Trust Insurance Services, LLC and supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts and Texas Commission on the Arts.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Grand 1894 Opera House is located in Galveston's historic downtown Cultural Arts District, and is recognized as "The Official Opera House of the State of Texas."
