Co-chairs Bob Gowen and Izabela Ozdemir

The American Pianists Association, an organization with the mission to discover, promote and advance the careers of world-class young American jazz and classical pianists, held its fundraiser Reds, Whites & Blues at The Jazz Kitchen April 29. More than 130 guests attended the event, which included a wine tasting with food pairings and jazz piano music inspired by each wine. Attendees participated in a wine pull with their choice of 88 bottles of wine (representing the 88 keys on a piano). In addition to the wine pull, attendees had the opportunity to bid on a wine tasting from Kahn’s Fine Wines & Spirits. Izabela Ozdemir and Bob Gowen served as co-chairs for the event, and Keystone Construction was the title sponsor. Proceeds from the event support American classical and jazz pianists and free arts outreach programs in central Indiana schools, nursing homes and community centers.
