Back by popular demand, the World Chess Hall of Fame is pleased to once again welcome the 442s to our stage!

Combining two members of the world-class St. Louis Symphony and two of the city’s finest jazz musicians, The 442s are a genre-defying acoustic quartet named for the modern standard tuning of 442 Hz. Brought together by the innovative and inspired compositions of Adam Maness, who plays piano, guitar, accordion, melodica and glockenspiel in the group, The 442s also features Shawn Weil on violin, Bjorn Ranheim on cello and Sydney Rodway on bass. This unique collaboration, formed in 2012, combines outstanding musicianship, group singing and inventive improvisation, all while breaking down barriers between jazz, classical, folk and pop music.
