Mid-century art meets mid-century music during Jazz at the Bechtler. Performed by the Ziad Jazz Quartet, the quartet features Ziad Rabie, artistic director and saxophone; Noel Freidline, keyboards; Ron Brendle, bass; and Rick Dior (or Al Sergel), drums. Concerts may also feature guest musicians and vocalists. 

The health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and visitors continues to be our first priority. During these unprecedented times, we remain fully committed to offering art, content, and experiences designed to engage and connect you to the world of arts and culture.

Until our museum doors reopen and health guidelines encourage larger public gatherings again, we are pleased to announce that Jazz at the Bechtler will return in the only way it can right now – virtually. 

Grab your favorite beverage, boot up your screen, and join us from the comfort of your home for the return of all things jazz.

The Bechtler offers two full concerts at each Jazz at the Bechtler event. Concertgoers may choose from one of two shows: 6 to 7:30 p.m. or 8:15 to 9:30 p.m. Each concert will be performed by the Ziad Jazz Quartet without an intermission. - See more at: http://www.bechtler.org/Learn/Events/details/jazz-at-the-bechtler-33#sthash.VgeX1dN9.dpuf
