Saturday, October 1 Jazz Concert 8:00pm

Over the last several years, they have combined forces to form “The Quartet.” These master players bring decades of musical experience to the stage – but now they’re playing for each other. Their combined history yields an enormous collective repertoire, allowing them to select compositions that span several decades of jazz history.
