Pre-Hanukkah Blues: A Concert Celebrating Jewish Composers

Featuring wonderful music like Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin, Songs of a Wayfarer by Gustav Mahler, the thrilling Grand Russian Fantasia by the great cornetist Jules Levy, and, last but not least, a medley of songs from Fiddler on the Roof, featuring members of Congregation Sha’arei Shalom! I’ll have a couple originals on the program, too – although I am not Jewish, my name is Hebrew in origin…

Come and enjoy some wonderful music, share a laugh or two and celebrate the Jewishness of some of history’s greatest musical minds!

I am launching my Indiegogo Campaign for a New Solo Guitar Album (Scott Keever)!!

I’m looking to raise $5,000 to pay for the costs of recording, mixing, designing and producing CDs. This will be an album of all original solo guitar music composed by myself. It will be entitled “Solo Guitar” because it will just be me and a guitar on each piece – no other instruments or players. I will be helped by producer Ray Yates and engineer Reid Kruger at Waterbury Studios, and I’m looking for a release date in early Dec 2018. This has been a long time coming and I’m really looking forward to finally making it happen.

Below is a link to my Indiegogo page. Please watch the video and donate to the perk level of your choice. And Thank You!
