CMA Jazz and Chamber Concerts Start 2017 on a High Note

Friday, January 20, and Tuesday, January 31

The Columbia Museum of Art is ready to kick off the new year with the third concerts of both the CMA Jazz on Main and CMA Chamber Music on Main series. Both series feature world-renowned artistic directors and are intimately set in the museum’s gorgeous DuBose-Poston Reception Hall.

 

CMA Jazz on Main

Friday, January 20 | Happy hour and galleries open at 7:00 p.m. | Concert begins at 7:30 p.m. | Cash Bar

Combine the energy and swing of traditional American jazz with the rich harmonies and dark chromaticism of gypsy music, and one just begins to scratch the surface of the wonderful complexity that is Gypsy Jazz. Noel Freidline, acclaimed musician and artistic director of the series, performs with the Page brothers, guitarist Andy and bassist Zack, along with Asheville, N.C.-based jazz violinist Matt Williams.

“I have been excited about this show since we booked it!” says Freidline. “Gypsy jazz has become the popular name for the genre created by legendary guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stéphane Grappelli. It’s a tricky style of music that is deceptively complex and requires an immersion into the genre to play it correctly. We are fortunate to have the Page brothers and Matt Williams, who together will bring to life this amazing style of music, with all of its fire, passion, subtlety, and nuance.”
