Rio Clemente Comes To Centenary Stage
For Annual Valentine's Day Performance

From Manhattan's famed Birdland to the Lincoln Center and even a performance at the White House this past December, anyone who has listened to Rio Clemente play piano comes away in awe. A native of Morristown, NJ and a member of its Hall of Fame, Rio Clemente, will make a stop at the Little Theatre on Sunday, February 17th at 2 p.m. for his annual Valentine’s Day performance at Centenary Stage Company. This master pianist, also known as “The Bishop of Jazz,” mixes a strong classical background with a rich knowledge of jazz history, then adds an amazing sense of creativity and interpretation. The result is music that transcends all others, and nearly always produces a standing ovation and cries for “more.”

Clemente’s career began with a BMI scholarship for musical theatre and subsequent studies at Julliard School of Music. Along with his classical training, Clemente developed a style embracing a diversity of music that makes him one of the most expressive and versatile pianists anywhere. He's been named Professional Artist of the Year by the Arts Council of the Morris Area, New Jersey Monthly Magazine named him among its "Top 40 New Jerseyans", and the New Jersey Jazz Society named him Musician of the Year.


The Music for a Sunday Afternoon Series is sponsored by Mama’s Restaurant & Café Baci on Mountain Avenue in Hackettstown. Bring your ticket stub into Mama’s on the 17th and get a discount on a heart shaped pizza.
