Jazz Trumpeter Byron Stripling
Charismatic jazz trumpeter Byron Stripling takes the stage with Grammy-nominated singer Carmen Bradford, alongside our symphony, for a thrilling performance of jazz standards by Gershwin and more. Every selection on this vibrant program was recorded by Louis Armstrong—and many were also recorded (and made famous by!) his friends and legendary singers like Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and Bing Crosby.
Featuring favorites like “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “I Got Rhythm,” “I Won’t Dance,” “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “The Birth of the Blues,” and many more, this tribute to Louis’ legacy is guaranteed to jazz up your night out on the town!
Break out your dancing shoes as Just Khakis bring their energetic jazz-pop music to our lobby before the concert. Composed of seven lifelong musicians (a few of them have played music together for years!), this pre-concert showcase will kickstart your evening—and might even have you swing dancing along to the tunes of a jazz golden age!
