Back by popular demand!  Josh Christina returns to the Liriodendron Mansion for a special Family Fun Day outdoor concert on Sunday, July 11 from 5 to 7 pm. 

Called a “mix between Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley and Elton John”, Josh’s energetic brand of 50’s rock n roll makes the classics sound brand new. Josh Christina will restore your confidence in the ability of young musicians to carry on the great tradition of rock’s pioneers. Josh writes his own music, refurbishes the classics, and plays a mean piano.  Josh Christina is a rock n roll revivalist whose music provides a bridge across generational lines by going backward to move into the future.

The piano aficionado can be heard on his two Nashville-recorded albums, “Good Old Love” and “I’m 21″, both produced by Kent Wells. His album “Instincts” was recorded at the historic Sam Phillips Recording Studio in Memphis, co-produced by two-time Grammy award winner Jon Carroll (Starland Vocal band.) He followed that up with the single ”Let’s Get Woke” in 2019, and the singles “Rockstar” and “Old Piano” in 2020.

Livestream Concert: Music at the Mansion Presents Yoshi Horiguchi

Livestream Concert: Music at the Mansion Presents Yoshi Horiguchi

The Liriodendron Foundation is thrilled to welcome Yoshi Horiguchi to the virtual Music at the Mansion stage for a free livestream concert on Sunday, June 6 from 7 to 8 pm on Zoom and Facebook.

Acclaimed by the Baltimore Sun for his ability to perform with a “dazzling display of dexterity and panache”, Yoshi Horiguchi is a double bassist who plays outside the lines. Although classically trained, his endeavors span across a broad spectrum of genres having performed in concert halls with the National Philharmonic and Alarm Will Sound, hip-hop clubs with the Baltimore Boom Bap Society, dance halls with The Hungry Monks Swing Band, smoke-filled bars with Classical Revolution, and more. Yoshi is currently the bassist for the National Chamber Winds, was a founding member of Trio Jinx, and has collaborated with a broad range of artists such as Zuill Bailey, Judith Ingolfsson, Hal Robinson, Alex Fiterstein, Michael Kannen, Wendel Patrick, Shodekeh, Don Vappie, Tony Arnold, Lauren Ruth Ward, and more. Yoshi has also performed at the Sitka Summer Music Festival, Iowa Great Lakes Festival, Mesa Arts Center, El Paso Pro Musica, the Kennedy Center, among others.

In addition to being an active performer, Yoshi is an educator, pedagogue, and string specialist. He has served on the faculty for the Baltimore Symphony’s, El Sistema inspired, ORCHkids program, Bass Works, the Peabody Preparatory, American Music System Camps, York College of PA, UMBC, the International Society of Bassists Young Bassists division, and more.  His passion and drive for students to study pedagogically beneficial and accessible music has inspired him to arrange works that are being performed throughout the United States and beyond.

Believing in recitals outside of the typical “formal performance,” Yoshi’s performances involve audience collaboration, allowing the audience to have a clearer idea of what is going on in the mind and the heart of the performer, resulting in a more holistic experience

We are excited to present this dynamic performer to the Music at the Mansion audience!
