International Artist Series: Jason Lyle Black turns music upside down

MINOT, N.D. – Spend your Valentine’s Day evening watching the backwards piano man Jason Lyle Black perform his interactive music and comedy mashup show as the third act of Minot’s International Artist Series. 

Black is an award-winning pianist, composer, and comedic entertainer featured by Huffington Post, Good Morning America, and most notably, The Ellen Show, where Ellen called his backwards and upside-down piano performance “unbelievable.” 

His show in Ann Nicole Nelson Hall on Friday, Feb. 14 at 7:30 p.m. will feature a variety of music, including Phantom of the Opera, Songs Not to Play at Funerals, and Song on the Spot, in which audience members suggest random notes and styles for Black to create a piece of music on the spot. 

The award-winning concert pianist is excited to perform in North Dakota for the first time. 

“I am looking forward to visiting Minot State University campus! This will be my first performance in the state of North Dakota, and I can't wait to come meet students and faculty. My goal as an artist is to use music and personality to put a smile on people's faces, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to tour to 18 states throughout the country this year sharing my music with audiences of all ages,” he said.
