“Piano Evolutions: From Classical to American Jazz” is the theme of a concert planned for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 18, in Davis. The performers are pianists Nancy Lower and Louise Bettner, and violinist Susanne Wilson-Wong.

The concert will spotlight works by classical composers J.S. Bach, Siloti, Brahms and Rachmaninoff as well as American classical and blues composers Nathaniel Dett, William Grant Still and Dana Suesse (known to contemporaries as the “Girl Gershwin”). Jazz standards and Dixieland piano duets will complete the program.

A benefit for the church building fund at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis, the concert will take place at the church, 27074 Patwin Road. The suggested donation is $5 to $20 at the door.

Lower, the church’s music director, holds a bachelor’s degree in music from UC Davis and a master’s degree from Sacramento State University. A pianist and church choir director, she has taught music at Sacramento City College since 1984 and directed church music programs for more than 20 years. She is a resident of Dixon.

Bettner, a Davis resident, is a psychologist-musician with a bachelor of music in piano performance and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology. A semi-retired geropsychologist, she is interested in jazz music history, music by female composers, and the interface between classical European music and American jazz.

Wilson-Wong is a freelance violinist and violin teacher in the Bay Area. A founding member of the Women’s Philharmonic, she played for many years with the Chrysanthemum Ragtime Band.
