This August, the SYC Ensemble Singers and Jennifer Tham change tracks, climbing aboard the folk-rock-gospel-jazz train that is the music of Steve Dobrogrosz. Sweeping in on warm winds, urgent with the energy of the jazz piano, Steve himself will accompany the choir on a ride through Aspects of Love.

About Steve Dobrogrosz

Steve Dobrogosz grew up in the American south (Raleigh, NC) where his training as a classical pianist paralleled his fascination with popular music. After moving to Stockholm in ‘78 he became part of Scandinavia’s jazz scene as both pianist and composer. His 1982 duo album “Fairy Tales” with Norwegian singer Radka Toneff is widely regarded as a classic. The Gothenburg Post compared his music to Gershwin and Porter, writing “Dobrogosz’s songs are melodic masterpieces, with a harmonic sophistication seldom found in music today.”

In the 90s Dobrogosz shifted focus to notated composition and his reputation grew as a modern representative of tonal lyricism. His first major choral work “Mass” (1992) has now been performed in over 40 countries. Dobrogosz’s oeuvre includes over 1,000 compositions in a broad spectrum of genres. His duo recordings with Anna Christoffersson received two Swedish Grammy nominations.
