Lenore Raphael is one of the world’s most critically acclaimed jazz pianists and she is once again gracing the Colorado Springs community with a performance at the Gold Room in Downtown Colorado Springs.

Jazz critics have compared her to Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans and even The lonious Monk, but with all these influences, Lenore Raphael is just ONE thing…a great pianist!”

Critics, jazz hosts and jazz lovers all agree that Lenore Raphael is one of the most Swinging Mainstream pianists today. Influenced by Oscar Peterson, Buddy Powell and Bill Evans, she has taken these influences and created her own recognizable sound and style.

Lenore has been coming to Colorado Springs to partner with the Colorado Springs Conservatory (CSC) for nearly 20 years now. “ We are grateful for her friendship and her commitment to exciting and inspiring the students at the Conservatory all these years,” says Linda Weise, Founding CEO of the CSC.

Lenore will be performing with long time friends and artists Steve Hobbs on vibraphone, Ken Walker on bass & Jesse Simon on drums.

“We are thrilled to bring these artists to the Gold Room,” says Ashely Guinto, the Gold Room Manager. “The venue is just perfect for this performance.”

VIP tickets are available to ensure table service in front rows.
