CLASSICAL PIANIST ANDRE BOHREN, March 2, 2017, 7:30pm
Andre Bohren was born in New Orleans, but grew up traveling across the country with his family, following his father Spencer Bohren’s tour schedule. When Andre was twelve, the family finally settled in Wyoming, and it was there he discovered a love of classical music. Four years later, under the tutelage of Dr. Janet Ahlquist, he would perform Gershwin’s “Rhapsody In Blue” with the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra.
After moving back to New Orleans, he studied for two years with Dr. John Murphy at Loyola University. It was there that he founded the rock/funk band Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes (JSDN) in 2001, manning the drum and percussion chair. This band has been Andre’s main focus for the past 13-plus years, as they have released six albums and toured across the country for over a decade, playing such renowned venues as Red Rocks Amphitheater, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and New York’s Knitting Factory.
In 2012 Andre began studying classical piano once more at the University of New Orleans with Dr. Robin Williams, and after taking a break from school for a decade, he has just put finishing touches on his Bachelor’s Degree in Music Studies. When not playing piano, Andre can be found working with many artists around New Orleans, including JSDN, Dave Jordan, Rory Danger & the Danger Dangers, The Write Brothers, and his father Spencer Bohren.
