Anthony Deutsch and Kenny Reichert Duo
April 1 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Anthony Deutsch is a Milwaukee-based pianist, vocalist and composer. For nearly two decades, his musical journey has been largely informed by an unwavering thirst for truth and self-expression. Embodying both the light and darkness of the human experience, Deutsch aims to invoke a timeless presence. Improvisation is at the heart of his artistry. “Improvisation is the act of being present. One must listen beyond their own narrative, embody that at hand, and produce a fruitful compositional offering. It is difficult and fleeting, but may yield deep beauty.”
Kenny Reichert began his study of classical piano at age 5 and guitar at age 12. He began his jazz studies with local guitar veteran Roger Brotherhood and joined the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra Jazz Studies program, studying under Barry Oosterwaal, Ethan Bender, and Neil Davis. Kenny also attended the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music under the direction of Eric Jacobson. During his high school years, Kenny won various soloist awards, including “Best Class A Soloist” at the Eau Claire Jazz Festival.
