Jazz Small Ensembles
Beneath the Cedar Tree
Monday, April 18, 2022 at 7:30pm
Darius Hampton, director
Cedar Walton is one of the most celebrated pianists in jazz history, and his work as a composer is equally deserving of celebration. Works such as Bolivia and Firm Roots have become classics and jewels of the jazz canon. This concert features new arrangements inspired by the genius of Cedar Walton and his music.
In the interest of protecting the health and safety of our audience and the Bienen community, the Joe Clark Ensemble has regrettably withdrawn from tonight's performance. The program will feature the Darius Hampton Ensemble only.
Tickets are $6 for the general public and $4 for students with valid ID.Sold Out
