About this event

A glimpse of gospel, jazz, and soul from the great legends is what inspires the sound of
pianist Theron Brown’s music. But the reason he plays is to encourage and influence people
through his talents.

Originally from Zanesville, Ohio, Theron currently resides in Akron, Ohio, where he is
Professor of Practice at The University of Akron teaching jazz piano, and the program
coordinator for Curated Storefront’s Artist Residency Program at the ‘I Promise School’.
Theron also serves as an educator for the interactive piano learning app, Playground
Sessions. Theron is heavily involved in the music community as the founder and artistic
director of the Rubber City Jazz & Blues Festival, which takes place annually in Akron, Ohio’s
downtown historic district. Theron performs and tours regularly with his trio that includes
Zaire Darden on drums and Jordan McBride on bass.

Theron received an amazing opportunity as he auditioned for and was cast as young Herbie
Hancock in the 2016 film, Miles Ahead, directed by and starring Don Cheadle.

In 2019, Theron released his debut album, No Concepts. Theron is currently working on his
second album.
