Pianist, Arranger, Conductor
| Recent reviews:
(Ridenour's) performance was masterful, with singing lyrical themes and pianissimos nothing short of gorgeous. His rapid fire staccatos at the conclusion dazzled.
C. J. Gianakaris Kalamazoo Gazette
Much whimsy. Much fun. Rich Ridenour was infectious!
Cleveland Plain Dealer
A wildly talented Ridenour...effortless double notes, fluent arpeggios and engaged the audience in charming repartee.
