The Indiana Japan Chamber (IJC) has invited Senri Oe, a jazz pianist from New York City, as a special guest for a solo piano concert, following the IJC annual meeting. Everyone is welcome to attend the concert. Join the IJC for this great opportunity.

A New York resident for the past decade, Senri Oe has made a name for himself as an innovative, engaged and highly creative member of the Jazz Community. Though he has proved his skill as a songwrit´╗┐er, pianist, singer and more, he prefers to describe himself simply as a jazz musician who loves to write music and perform on piano.

Oe-san originally broke onto the music scene in the 1980s as a very successful singer/songwriter in Japan, winning a Japanese Grammy and topping the Billboard Charts. After establishing himself in the Japanese pop world with numerous hit songs throughout the 80s and 90s, Oe-san moved to the United States in 2008 to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a jazz pianist. 

In the six jazz albums Senri has released as a leader since 2012, he's shown himself to be versatile and adventurous, exploring different facets of jazz with each album. Since moving to the U.S., he's successfully reinvented himself as a jazz artist rather than a J-pop sing/songwriter, and has traded the stadiums for more intimate venues. These days, Senri Oe is living his lifelong dream, dedicating himself to jazz composition, constantly striving to progress, and impressing listeners and collaborators with his passion, enthusiasm and love of the music.
