David Walters brief bio:
Mr. Walters is as well-known in the field of jazz as he is for his extensive work in classical music. He has performed at universities throughout the area, including UTC, Bryan College, Southern Adventist University, Lee University, Chattanooga State, Covenant College, The University of the South, and Jacksonville State University. Mr. Walters currently serves on the piano faculties of The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Cadek Conservatory of Music and Chattanooga State Community College where he teaches classical and jazz piano. His performance resume includes many chamber music concerts with both UTC and Cadek faculty members, solo piano recitals, local and regional appearances with his jazz trio and numerous appearances throughout the area as a solo jazz pianist. He has performed at many public and private events, including the United States Governors Conference and at Chattanooga’s prestigious Riverbend Festival, for which he, along with his trio group, received rave notices.
He performs classical recitals and, in addition to solo and duo jazz work, has led the Trio for many years. As a jazz pianist, his touch is lyrical and perceptive. There is an intimacy, directness and honesty that makes his interpretation of jazz music very good company.
Jazz fans note that the following Friday, Dec. 13, we’ll have acclaimed saxophonist Greg Tardy with the Boling/Brown/Holloway Trio for an 8 pm show.
