Sit back and relax with the soulful sound of a modern jazz legend as part of the Lacey in Tune summer-concert series. Award-winning horn player Dmitri Matheny will conclude the series with his smooth charm and masterful form on the flugelhorn. Born in Nashville, Tennessee and raised between Georgia and Arizona, Matheny has been playing music since the age of 5. He’s known among jazz audiences as the protégé of jazz trumpeter and flugelhorn player Art Farmer, who actually left his copper-bell flugelhorn to Matheny upon Farmer’s passing in 1999. Farmer’s lyricism and tonality can still be heard in Matheny’s work, which he’s performed internationally from recording studios on the West Coast to Carnegie Hall.
