CSU Channel Islands Foundation presents an evening with Bruce Hornsby on October 8th at 6:30PM. Join us for an intimate concert under the stars featuring a piano solo concert by Grammy Award-Winning artist Bruce Hornsby. His commercial stock soared early on, when “The Way It Is”- the title track of his 1986 debut album- became one of the most popular songs on American Radio. Despite his early mainstream successes, Hornsby has pursued a more personal, idiosyncratic musical path, focusing on projects that sparked his creative interest, including collaborations with the Grateful Dead, Spike Lee, Ricky Skaggs, Don Henley, Ornette Coleman, Bob Dylan, Bela Fleck, Bonnie Raitt, Pat Metheny, and Robbie Robertson. Hornsby’s performance will offer a glimpse of a restless spirit who continues to push forward into exciting new musical terrain.
The concert will be held at the Libbey Bowl, 210 S. Signal St, Ojai. Funds raised will strengthen academic programs and create opportunities for CSU Channel Islands students. $75 general admission; $250 VIP reception.
