The Falcon welcomes everyone. There are no tickets, no cover charge, and no minimum. They encourage contributions to the careworn donation box, which remains as both a symbol of democracy in the arts and a way for any patron, of any financial strata, to give what they will and what they can, in support of the living artists whose work they have enjoyed. This fund goes directly to our extraordinary performing musicians in the main act, demonstrating our respect and gratitude for their skill, and livelihood.

Featuring Tatum Greenblatt/Trumpet, Tivon Pennicott/Sax, Danton Boller/Bass and Ari Hoenig/Drums
“…beautifully merges the worlds of serious jazz and pop”- Boston Globe
Misha Piatigorsky’s unusual harmonic sensitivity reflect his experience as a Russian-Jewish émigré growing up in urban America. Piatigorsky made his public debut at age five on Russian National Television. He has been a highly sought-after pianist, regularly performing at prestigious venues ranging from Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, and the Yekaterinburg Philharmonic to the Cotton Club in Tokyo, Iridium in New York City and the Basin Street in São Paulo.
Piatigorsky’s technique, charisma and electric energy have been described in the Jazz Review as combining “the chalice of modernism with the stew-pot of soul” and “straddling the line between Mussorgsky and Vince Guaraldi,” according to Brad Walseth of Chicago Jazznet.
