Jazz Roots: Jazz and the Philharmonic

| December 26, 2012 | Calendar

A superstar roster of Award-winning jazz and classical musicians, YoungArts All-Star Master Teachers and Alumni, as well as rising stars will come together for an unprecedented one-night-only concert at the Arsht Center. The concert, directed by Larry Rosen, will showcase Bobby McFerrin, Chick Corea, Dave Grusin, Terence Blanchard, Mark O’Connor, Shelly Berg, Eric Owens, Elizabeth Roe, Desmond Richardson, plus the University of Miami Frost School of Music’s Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra. The program will feature these pre-eminent artists performing themes by the world’s greatest composers – including Bach, Debussy, Aaron Copland, and Henry Mancini, as well as Chick Corea, Dave Grusin, and Terence Blanchard -- in a mix of orchestral stylings and jazz improvisations, and culminate in an explosive grand finale!

Hosted by Tony Award nominee and 1986 YoungArts alumnus for Modern Dance Desmond Richardson, this special music event will mark the first time that the Adrienne Arsht Center, the University of Miami Frost School of Music, and the National YoungArts Foundation will join forces to present an integrated program. The concert is also one of the special events during YoungArts Week 2013 when the nation's top young artists in the visual, literary, and performing arts will perform and exhibit their works in Miami.
