The West Shore Community College Performing Arts Series presents Joscho Stephan, with special guests Third Coast Swing, on Friday, Sept. 8, 2023.  The show starts at 7:30 p.m. at the college’s Center Stage Theater.

Stephan is a jazz guitarist who is known for his lightning fast plectrum picking and interpretation of classical, jazz and pop standards in the style of gypsy jazz. He began playing the guitar at the age of six, influenced by his father.  He has toured with top guitarists Martin Taylor and Tommy Emmanuel, as well as performed at New York’s Lincoln Center and New Yorker jazz shrine Birdland.

“We are honored and delighted to open our series with Joscho Stephan,” stated Director of Performing Arts and Professor of Music Ted Malt.  “This is an all-ages show that will have the house swinging!”
