LEWISTON, Idaho - The LCSC Silverthorne Artist’s Series presents composer and songwriter Jason Farnham performing An Evening of Contemporary Piano Saturday, November 16, at 7:00 p.m. at the Silverthorne Theater, located in the Administration Building on the Lewis-Clark State College campus. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Raised in Canton, Ohio, Jason Farnham began playing the piano at the age of four. An international entertainer, he has been called the “chameleon artist” because he performs in so many different genres. Farnham’s performances have ranged from the baby grand at Deepak Chopra's retreat in San Diego to the synthesizer in Sunset Strip's hottest techno dance clubs. A diverse composer and songwriter, his song “Rock Star”, from the album Barriers, was placed in the feature film American High School. Farnham also appeared as a pianist in an episode of Queen Bees which aired on Nickelodeon. Farnham has been affectionately dubbed by fans as "The Human Schroeder" from Peanuts because of his comical-style of playing.
Farnham’s most recent projects include composing for a BMW commercial and scoring the independent film Hiding in the Open. He now composes for Harpo Productions - Oprah Winfrey's production company, and composed and produced music for this past season of the Dr. Oz Show, including the opening theme. Two of Farnham’s tracks were also selected and used for Winfrey’s recent “No Phone Zone” campaign.
The Silverthorne Artist’s Series provides the students of LCSC and community members exposure to cultural and educational experiences through the performing arts.
