Zionsville Christian Church invites you to the Ben Rosenblum Trio jazz concert, a free community event. Join us as we share our love of music with our community!

Award-winning New York City jazz pianist Ben Rosenblum is an internationally touring multi-instrumentalist and has been described as “mature beyond his years” (Sea of Tranquility), an “impressive talent” (All About Jazz), who “caresses [the music] with the reverence it merits” (Downbeat Magazine). Drawing from an eclectic repertoire that includes selections from the jazz and popular music traditions, as well as global music influences from South America, Eastern Europe, Ireland, and the Caribbean, Rosenblum combines his modern, melodic sensibility with a broad knowledge of a variety of musical lineages from the past one hundred years. The band never repeats the same program twice – every evening is a unique experience shaped by the audience and the setting.

Since the release of his debut trio album, Instead (4 stars, Downbeat), Rosenblum has toured extensively with his trio and sextet throughout the United States, including multiple trips to the Northeast, Midwest, South, and West Coast, as well as internationally in Canada, Europe, and Japan. He was a featured soloist at Carnegie Hall’s Stern-Perelman Auditorium – with Reona Ito’s New York Harmonic Band – and has appeared at prestigious venues throughout the world, including at the Appel Room at Lincoln Center, Kuumbwa Jazz Center, Ravinia, Himawari-No-Sato Concert Hall in Yokohama, Bird’s Eye in Basel, and the Library of Congress. Rosenblum’s second trio album, River City, was called “richly romantic” and “well-realized” by JAZZIZ Magazine, which featured the title track as part of its Best of Fall 2018 CD. Most recently, Rosenblum released his third album, Kites and Strings, which is the first to feature him on both piano and accordion, alongside his new sextet, the Nebula Project. In 2020, the Nebula Project was voted runner-up for “best new artist” in JazzTimes‘ Readers’ Poll. Rosenblum has been privileged to share the stage with many highly acclaimed jazz musicians, including extensive work with Curtis Lundy, Winard Harper, Deborah Davis, and Chris Washburne, as well as appearances with Bobby Watson, Sean Jones, TS Monk, Warren Wolf, Eliot Zigmund, and many others. Rosenblum’s musical interests also extend beyond jazz to include work in numerous world music scenes, including musical styles from Brazil, Peru, Croatia, Bulgaria, India, Ireland, Jewish traditions, and more.
