Michael Pedicin, in collaboration with the South Jersey Jazz Society, presents “Jazz with Philly Roots.” Michael has created a wonderful series of presenting his friends, most of whom are musicians and university educators, who have grown up in the city of Philadelphia and established themselves as important figures on the current jazz scene there, as well as some national and international prominence. All concerts will be held at 2:00pm in the Chris Maloney Lecture Hall in the Ocean City Free Public Library. Concerts are FREE and open to the public. No tickets required! 

Sumi Tonooka Trio




Sumi Tonooka (pronounced To-NO-ka) has been called a “fierce and fascinating composer and pianist” (Jazz Times), “provocative and compelling” (New York Times), and “continually inventive, original, surprising, and a total delight,” (Cuadranos de Jazz, Madrid). With nine recordings to her name and a vast catalogue of compositions in genres symphonic, chamber, dance, film and jazz, Tonooka continues to be a creative force as a pianist/composer. Recent activities include artist in residence with the South Dakota Symphony, Kimmel Center Creative Music program in Philadelphia, and winner of the American Composers Orchestra Readings in NYC, through the Jazz Composers Orchestra Intensive (JCOI).
