Rufus honored with Lifetime Achievement Award by Wharton Arts

The prestigious Wharton Arts Lifetime Achievement Award distinguishes individuals who, during their lifetime, have made creative contributions of outstanding artistic significance to the performing arts and represent a beacon of inspiration to Wharton Arts’ students.  I am truly honored to have been chosen for this award.  I just do what I do, and even I am surprised at what can be accomplished in a life time.

Wharton Arts will also honor George Marriner Maull with its Education Award for his joint appointment in 1979 as Assistant Conductor of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and founding Music Director and Conductor of the New Jersey Youth Symphony (NJYS).

Check the Wharton Arts website for details, press, etc.  It comes with dinner and music too!

To attend the gala and support Wharton Arts, including its silent auction, please visit WhartonArtsGala.org.

Rufus is The 2024 Gomez Artist in Residence at UNT

The Glenn E. Gomez International Artists Endowment for Jazz Studies enables the University of North Texas’ College of Music to bring internationally known jazz artists to the university for residencies enabling the creation of relationships with University of North Texas students.

I am delighted to be the artist chosen for this year.  It will be a busy, exhilarating week.  I will be seeing students all day and performing in the evenings with Nick Finzer and Quincy Davis, with the Student Jazz Chamber Music Ensembles and the final concert with UNT Lab Bands.

Check back as we get more info!
