This marks Steven Schoenberg's first New York concert since the release of Steven Schoenberg Live: An Improvisational Journey. He is a dynamic, award winning composer/pianist whose talents cross into musical theater, classical compositions, film scoring, children's music, and solo improvisational piano performances. His acclaimed recordings, Pianoworks and Three Days in May, are available on CD. He regularly performs improvisational piano concerts and has appeared at concert halls throughout the United States. His recent scores include the documentaries Monica and David to air this fall on HBO; A Class Apart, for the PBS series American Experience; An Act of Conscience, for Showtime; and Farmingville, which opened the 2005 PBS series POV. Farmingville took home the Special Jury Award from the Sundance Film Festival. Schoenberg has scored numerous Emmy Award-winning films for other PBS series. For children's television, he has composed songs for Sesame Street and scored films for ZOOM and the Children's Television Workshop. Other children's projects include composing music for the award-winning book and CD My Bodyworks, written by his wife Jane Schoenberg. Steven and Jane are also developing two musicals.

“What pianist and spontaneous composer Steven Schoenberg does in his own “interactive" An Improvisational Journey is start a piece with an eye blink, a deep breath, and a long, integral, creative exhalation with a beginning, a middle and an end. . . there is a whole lot of church here, as well as boogie-woogie." --All About Jazz

His improvisations are “eloquent, lush, and flowing. . . that form sequential states of mind." --Downbeat

He has been called a “lyrical player with a gift for delicate interlocking melodies and extended single-note runs high up the keyboard." --Boston Globe

“Steven Schoenberg's kaleidoscopic piano speaks with a uniquely American voice. His flowing compositions, laced with stride, folk, modern jazz, and impressionistic styles, burst open into full-scale musical dioramas." -Prairie Public Radio

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
