The JCC Rockland presents “A Night to Remember” with the dueling pianos of Dick Hyman and Bill Charlap, in a “once in a lifetime” duo interpretation of “Rhapsody in Blue.“ The Saturday, Oct. 22, event at the Rockland Community College Cultural Arts Center in Suffern, begins at 8 p.m.

Dick Hyman has recorded, composed, and performed ragtime, boogie-woogie, swing, bebop and all other jazz styles in upward of 1,000 albums, is a sound track composer for more than a dozen Woody Allen films, founded the Jazz in July concerts at the 92nd Street Y, and will be a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master Fellow in 2017.

Bill Charlap has performed with many leading artists including Tony Bennett and Wynton Marsalis. He won a Grammy Award last year for “Silver Lining: Songs of Jerome Kern” with Tony Bennett. He has been the artistic director of 92ndStreet Y’s Jazz in July Summer Festival and is the director of jazz studies at William Paterson University.

The concert is made possible through the generosity of Simona and Jerome A. Chazen. For information, call Elena Heydt at (845) 362-4400, ext. 106, email jazz@jccrockland.org, or go to jccrockland.org/jazz.
