Jodie and Glenn


Jodie DeSalvopiano

Jodie is joined by Concertmaster Glenn Basham of the Naples Philharmonic for their popular annual concert. This exciting duo has been performing together for over 30 years, and always entertains not only with their exquisite playing but their engaging personalities and crazy senses of humor. Even if you have heard them before, you will want to hear them again.

This performance is part of Jodie DeSalvo's Piano Talks series.
