2019 JAZZ IN JUNE FESTIVAL

Christian McBride & Tip City

SATURDAY, JUNE 8, 2019

Venue Berlind Theatre

OVERVIEW

Takes jazz to another plane.

Variety

To call Christian McBride a force of nature is an understatement. Composer, educator, arranger, bandleader—he does it all. As a performer, he is not only the pre-eminent bassist in the jazz world with six Grammys, but a master of his own empire of ensembles, from his New Jawn Quartet to his Big Band, right down to the Tip City trio he brings for this performance. And if that weren’t enough, he runs his own imprint on the Mack Avenue Music label, serves as artistic director, advisor, and curator of jazz festivals (including both Newport and NJPAC) , and hosts The Lowdown: Conversations with Christian, a weekly NPR show on SiriusXM satellite radio.

Join us for a post-show conversation with the Christian McBride, Melissa Walker (founder of Jazz House Kids), and Joe Bongiovi (founder of the Philadelphia Jazz Orchestra and band director at Princeton High School).

This event is part of the Jazz in June Festival.

 

Join us in McCarter’s Lockwood Lobby from 5:00pm – 8:00pm on June 7, 8, 14, 15, and 22!

There will be delicious food and drinks available for purchase, plus music and activities for the whole family.

Pre-show admission and activities are FREE and OPEN to the PUBLIC.
