Dubbed "The Chameleon Artist" because of his multiple genre music, Jason Farnham of Los Angeles, CA is tuly THE "International Entertainer of the Contemporary Piano Music". From the baby grand at Deepak Chopra's retreat in San Diego to the Cultural Center for the Arts in Canton, Ohio, Jason's spectacular show "An Evening of Contemporary Piano" delights.
The Mountain Home Arts Council will host An Evening of Contemporary Piano with Jason Farnham Piano Concert on Nov. 22 at the First Congregational Church (515 E 15th N, Mountain Home).

An Evening of Piano with Jason Farnham delights audiences around the U.S., again and again. Fans have affectionately dubbed him "Schroeder" from Peanuts because of his toy piano, his witty Victor Borge-style piano comedy antics and the clever way he interacts with the audience. The variety includes contemporary romantic piano, jazz, bossa nova, blues, stride piano, and classical with a modern twist!
Jason Farnham of San Francisco Bay, CA is truly the “International Entertainer of Contemporary Piano Music.” The newest addition to his piano show has become his staple track: Fur Elise with a techno-rock beat: “Fur Crying Out Loud Elise, Let’s Dance!” And Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Rondo Alla Turca has now become “Rondo Alla Techno.” Fans of Mannheim Steamroller and rich piano instrumentals will find much to love here. Jason Farnham is a first-class entertainer, and his show is sure to leave the audience smiling.
Raised in Northeast Ohio, Jason began playing the piano at the age of four. He studied piano with numerous teachers and was classically trained. Later in high school and his college years at Ohio University, he began crafting his own style of music. A diverse composer, producer and songwriter, his song “Rock Star”, from the album “Barriers”, was placed in 2 feature films, “Bobby Khan’s Ticket to Hollywood” (2011), “American High School” (2009), and a number of commercials. “Morning Coffee”, from the same album, was featured on the Filter Magazine Channel on all American Airlines flights for the month of January 2009. Most recently, Jason composed the music for the “The Brick People”, a documentary that chronicles the legacy of the Mexican immigrants who worked at Simons Brickyard in Montebello, CA during the early part of the 20th Century. Other projects include music for a BMW commercial, a Google/YouTube “My Business Story” ad campaign and Fox Movie Classics Commercial: “Office Space: The Musical”. Through Studio 51 Music, Jason also provides background music for Harpo Productions, and one of his tracks was selected as the theme song for “The Dr. Oz Show” (Season 2009-2010). His score for the short comedy film “You Are What You Eat” earned him a Platinum Remi Award at the 2011 Houston International Film Festival.
Jason’s music has also been licensed and used in numerous public service announcements, promos, and election campaigns. Visit www.jasonfarnham.com to keep up with the most recent news, and to sample Jason’s six albums.
