A song Joe Alterman played during a piano recital at age 12 got him kicked out of music school, but it set him on a future musical path of jazz that brings him to the Averitt Center next Thursday night. The Joe Alterman Trio will perform in concert on the Emma Kelly Stage at 7:30 p.m. May 10. At the recital 17 years ago, Alterman said he decided at the last minute, unbeknownst to his teacher and parents, to play a jazz piece called “Boogie Woogie” instead of a more traditional piece he was expected to play.
