Jazzy Nights Series
This season’s Jazzy Nights series presents some of the best in the business! See music legends Aiyb Dieng, Marcus Roberts, Dan Miller, Lew Del Gatto, and Carla Cook live in concert between January and April. SBDAC’s Jazzy Nights begins with Southwest Florida favorites Dan Miller and Lew Del Gatto on Friday, January 18th. The Miller / Del Gatto performance will also feature spectacular jazz vocalist Carla Cook.
Then, on Friday, February 15th, experience world music like never before with a performance from Aiyb Dieng and Friends. His most notable work is Rhythmagick, released to rave reviews in 1995. The final Jazzy Nights concert in the series features the Marcus Roberts Trio on Friday, April 19th. The Marcus Roberts Trio is known for its virtuosic style and entirely new approach to jazz trio performance. These 2019 concerts are sponsored in part by Frank & Lory Rodriguez.
Chamber Music Series
The Chamber Music Series begins in February with the Calidore String Quartet. The Calidore String Quartet aims to present performances that share the passion and joy of the string quartet chamber music repertoire. The Los Angeles Times says “The Calidore balance intellect and expression in such a way as to make them a pleasure to hear.” In addition, experience Apollo’s Fire on Thursday, March 28th and the American Virtuosi on March 29th!
Named for the classical god of music and the sun, Apollo’s Fire was founded by its Artistic Director Jeannette Sorrell, to revive the baroque ideal that music should evoke the various “Affekts” or passions in the listeners. This year’s American Virtuosi concert features masters of chamber music, including violinist Tai Murray. These back to back concerts will inspire audiences. Plus, receive $20 when you purchase tickets to both shows.
