Berks Jazz Fest Night: Jazz Upstairs Series
ERIC MINTEL QUARTET
Miller Symphony Hall / Rodale Community Room / Allentown
Tickets: www.millersymphonyhall.org

Bucks County’s Eric Mintel is a naturally gifted musician who learned to play Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five” during his earliest piano lessons.

He formed his quartet in 1993 and has accumulated a host of accolades since then — everything from performing at the White House to being a featured guest in 2005 on Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz on NPR.

The jazz quartet is comprised of Mintel on piano, Nelson Hill on saxophone and flute, Dave Mohn on drums and Jack Hedgyi on bass.
