What’s Still Going On? Marvin Gaye 
March 24

In 1970, Marvin Gaye asked a question that resonates today: “What’s Goin’ On?” The Motown man who sang his way into so many hearts and onto so many dance floors is featured as we explore the power and influence of his music and his message. Vocalist El Barak brings Gaye’s repertoire to life, from early songs like “How Sweet It Is” to his socially conscious “Mercy, Mercy Me.” 


Jazzical: A Courageous Musical Exchange 
March 31 

Come explore the possibilities when classical meets jazz: Miles and Mozart, Coltrane and Chopin. Harpist Gloria Galante and a classical pianist join the Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble in a performance featuring music by Thelonious Monk, McCoy Tyner, and Ahmad Jamal, including “’Round Midnight,” “Mr. PC,” “Blue Monk,” and others.


Jazz Piano: Play It Again Sam

Pianists Jeff Knoettner and Adam Faulk offer their interpretations of some of the great jazz piano players: Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Dave Brubeck, Fats Waller, Nat King Cole, Thelonious Monk, and others with songs like “Sweet Lorraine,” “Ain’t Misbehavin’,” “Take Five,” “’Round Midnight,” and more jazz classics.

 

Broadway Jazz

The lights of New York’s famed theater district always shine a little brighter when they put the jazz on stage. Vocals, dance, and swinging music will be a part of this tribute to the sound that made—and make—Broadway the jazziest street in New York. Join us for music from Ain’t Misbehavin’, Sophisticated Ladies, The Wiz, and more.
