Jazz at the Bechtler: Jazz for Lovers
LOCATION: BECHTLER MUSEUM OF MODERN ART
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2 AT 6 AND 8:15 P.M.
JAZZ FOR LOVERS
*Both shows are sold out. There will be no walkup tickets available at the door. Get your tickets now for our next Jazz at the Bechtler show: Frédéric Yonnet, March 2.*
Perhaps no other music genre tells us more about love in all its varied shades than jazz. From its openly sentimental ballads and teary torch songs to its fiery declarations of new love and playful odes to significant others, jazz numbers hit all the marks. In its eighth year at the Bechtler, the Ziad Jazz Quartet – with guest vocalist Toni Tupponce – knows well how to evoke the moods of love for Valentine’s Day.
Bring your sweetie February 2 and celebrate an early Valentine's Day with jazzy love songs. Things are bound to get heated as Tupponce, voted “sexiest voice in Charlotte” by Charlotte magazine in 2006, croons romantic tunes.
SPECIAL OPENING MUSICAL GUEST: BRIA ALEXANDER
Bria Alexander is a 15-year old 10th-grade IB student honor student at North Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte, North Carolina. She was first introduced to Community School of the Arts in 2010 through the School’s Orchestra in Schools violin program. In 2012, she was afforded the opportunity for vocal training when she received one of CSA’s merit scholarships for private voice lessons. In August, she represented CSA singing the national anthem at the Charlotte Knights game. Bria is currently the 2017-2018 recipient of the CSA Outstanding Musician Merit Scholarship Award for voice. Being a part of the Community School of the Arts has been a wonderful match for her talent and her love of music.
