Mark Bernat & Friends Concert Series: The Benny Sharoni Jazz Quartet

Date: 

Thursday, December 22, 2016 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Location: 

Old Capitol Museum

Join us for a special concert as we welcome back the Benny Sharoni Jazz Quartet to the Old Capitol Museum.

Tenor saxophonist Benny Sharoni is a U.S. bandleader, composer and arranger who is a mainstay on the international jazz scene. A straight ahead player who fuses together the classic bop influences of Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon and Steve Grossman (among many others), Sharoni flavors his music with Latin rhythms and an energetic drive that delights audiences worldwide. He demonstrates fervent skill on his horn that instantly lifts him above the pack, but that’s only one element of his winning formula. Sharoni is also a player committed to unfettered expression; reaching an audience through taste, beauty and infectious swing.

This concert is the first of the Mark Bernat and Friends Concert Series, is free to attend, and open to the public.
