The Jenny Wilson Trio jazz ensemble focuses on original music as well as choice classic and contemporary standards.

Jenny Wilson is a composer, pianist, flutist and vocalist. Originally from Queens, New York, she is a graduate of West Virginia University’s master of music jazz pedagogy program and has toured in Switzerland, Austria and Germany. Her composing, warm vocal style and articulate piano playing have earned her a fulltime career in music performance. This will be the second performance by the trio at Stifel Fine Arts Center.

Bassist Nathan Wilson is Jenny’s husband and also performs with the Squonk Opera from Pittsburgh, PA. He is especially attuned to the melodic style of playing that is a key element to the group sound.

Saxophonist Curtis E. Johnson is a member of the Pittsburgh Jazz Orchestra and is an instructor at WV Wesleyan and Carnegie Mellon University. He has performed as a soloist with the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. Johnson is also a renowned R&B and jazz performer. He has backed such performers as Christian McBride, Jeff “Tain” Watts, Benny Golson, Ahmad Jamal, Ray Charles, Little Anthony, Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, Chubby Checker, Chuck Berry, Isaac Hayes, Lou Rawls, The Spinners, Dionne Warwick, Martha Reeves, Cheryl Lynn, and is currently touring with Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr.
