Syncopate, bounce, and swing your way through more than a century of music that explores the connections between jazz and classical…from ragtime to Rhapsody in Blue and beyond! Just as this season began with virtuosic piano performances, we come full circle with a final flurry of incandescent playing courtesy of the Marcus Roberts Trio including their own spin on Rhapsody in Blue that is injected with improvisation, making it unique every time it is performed.
