As our county continues to watch the number of COVID-19 cases rise exponentially, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art will be supporting the recent directive from Mecklenburg County’s health director asking businesses, schools, and individuals to help minimize the growing spread of COVID-19 in our community and revert to “full virtual” operations wherever in-person activity is not required. 

Jazz at the Bechtler is currently livestreamed from the Playroom studios on the first Friday of each month. Concerts are performed by the Ziad Jazz Quartet, featuring Ziad Rabie, artistic director and saxophone; Noel Freidline, keyboards; Ron Brendle, bass; and Rick Dior (or Al Sergel), drums.

Grab your favorite beverage, boot up your screen, and join us from the comfort of your home for 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:
