Patrice Rushen to perform
Sunday, June 29 at Sheldon Concert Hall

Keyboardist Patrice Rushen is coming to St. Louis to perform at 5:00 p.m., Sunday, June 29 at the Sheldon Concert Hall.

Rushen, who turns 60 in September, may be best known among the record-buying public for her 1982 solo hit “Forget Me Nots,” but over the years she also has worked alongside many top jazz and pop musicians, including Prince, Lionel Hampton, Carlos Santana, Boys II Men, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, George Benson, Jean Luc Ponty, Tom Jones, Nancy Wilson, Michael Jackson, Dianne Reeves, Sheena Easton, Stanley Turentine, and Joshua Redman.

Although she hasn't released an album of all-new material since 1997's Signature, Rushen (pictured) has stayed active in this century writing scores for film and television, teaching at USC and Berklee, and serving as musical director for live events including the Grammy Awards telecasts from 2004 to 2006.

Tickets for Patrice Rushen at the Sheldon are $30 for the orchestra section, $25 for the balcony, and will go on sale at 10 a.m. today, Wednesday, June 4 via Metrotix.
