Joshua White-Holly Hoffman Duo
Pianist Joshua White is a remarkably gifted jazz performer, classical pianist, and composer. He began formal piano training at the age of seven and became the organist and pianist for the Encanto Southern Baptist Church by age 10.

For the last several years, White has been in demand as one of Southern California’s technically accomplished pianists as he interprets original compositions, as well as exploring the boundaries of collective improvisation. He performs regularly at Dizzy’s (San Diego), Blue Whale (Los Angeles), The Loft (La Jolla), the Athenaeum Music and Arts Library (La Jolla), and numerous other venues on the West Coast.

Performing with Joshua White will be jazz flute artist, Holly Hoffman. Taking the flute out of its stereotypical role has always been Holly's main objective. Holly is proof that the flute no longer plays second fiddle to any horn in jazz!
