Event Description

American trumpeter and current JazzFest artist-in-residence Terence Blanchard will perform his Jazz in Film project alongside the Spirit of the Groove Big Band led by Dominick Farinacci. The project is a portrait of jazz in cinema history and features highly influential themes from classics like Anatomy of a Murder, Taxi Driver and The Man with the Golden Arm. 

Saxophonist, singer, and composer Grace Kelly plays with the heart and passion of an old soul yet with the genre-bending zest and energy of a 24-year-old. A regular on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert with bandleader Jon Batiste, her 10th album, Trying To Figure It Out, was voted #2 Jazz Album of The Year in the 2016 DownBeat Magazine Readers Poll.

Children Policy:
Children under two years old are generally not permitted in the theaters. However, everyone regardless of age must have a ticket. All children must be seated with an adult.
