Upcoming events for pianist Gregg Karukas


Great melodies are the essential quality that has defined Grammy-winning pianist Gregg Karukas’s 30 years in music, with a dozen albums and chart-topping hit songs

But there’s another side to Gregg Karukas that has paced his greatest successes but has remained slightly out of the spotlight: His love of Brazilian music.

Serenata is Gregg Karukas’s first album in more than six years.

During this time away from the piano, he has faced personal challenges of the highest order: caring for his lovely wife Yvonne until cancer took her life in 2018; a health scare of his own; a biking accident brought a broken collar bone. The pandemic.

Serenata is also Gregg Karukas’s first solo piano album, and it was here, in his living room, seated at his grand piano, that the combination of memories and realities began to mingle with the powerfully beautiful melodies of iconic Brazilian songwriters Milton Nascimento, Dori Caymmi, and others.

Let Gregg Karukas take you on a personal tour of these cherished and romantic memories found in Serenata and the magical, healing power that music brings to our lives.
