Internationally renowned concert pianist Rudolf Budginas
has an unassuming daily life as a music faculty member at Santa Rosa Junior College, but he’s about to bust out of the mold. This week, he plays in a concert with Steve Miller Band guitarist Kenny Lee and Kingsborough drummer John Whitney for a rock-themed concert called “Piano on the Edge.” His 21st-century arrangements vary from smooth-jazz versions of “Ave Maria” to dubstep-infused classical piano. Witness a rare vision on Saturday, Oct. 19, at SRJC’s Newman Auditorium. 1501 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. 8pm. $20. 707.527.4011.
