Jeremy Davenport, Peter Martin to perform Friday, April 2 at The Sheldon

Pianist Peter Martin has announced the second show in his new series at the Sheldon Concert Hall: a duo performance with trumpet player, singer and fellow St. Louis native Jeremy Davenport (pictured) at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, April 2.

The show is billed as "The Reunion," since Martin and Davenport are old friends. Both attended University City High School here, and both moved to New Orleans in the 1990s to further their musical careers. Both also returned to St. Louis after Hurricane Katrina, though Davenport has since gone back to New Orleans to resume his gig as leader of the house band at the Ritz-Carlton.

Tickets for the April 2 concert are $50 for the "VIP reception package," which includes a post-concert reception, or $25 for standard orchestra seating, and are on sale now - with no "convenience fees" - from Martin's website.
