Visual art and music come together in this exciting collaboration where up-and-coming jazz students perform compositions inspired by works displayed at the Bowers Museum. Straight from the renowned Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance, these young musicians are part of an intensive two-year, college level program that enables a select group of the world’s most gifted young jazz musicians to study tuition-free. Their instructors include legendary musicians and educators including Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Dianne Reeves, Jimmy Heath, John Scofield, Lewis Nash, and Danilo Pérez, among others.
Location: Norma Kershaw Auditorium
Tickets: Free for members, visitors 18 (yrs.) and under, or with paid museum admission.
