Jazz Night at the Crocker
Thursday, September 21, 2017
Sacramento’s longest-running summer jazz series offers unrivaled evenings of art and music on third Thursdays, June through September. This year's lineup was crafted from the melodic recommendations of Gary Vercelli, Capital Public Radio’s jazz music director. For the best seat in the house, bring your own chair.
Jazz vocalist and recording artist Vivian Lee specializes in the classic standards, drawing her influence from greats such as Ellington, Brubeck, Mercer, and Gillespie. Lee's award-winning phrasing, storytelling, and magical stage presence have been captivating audiences for 15 years. As Lee continues to advocate for jazz here in Sacramento, she has assembled a top-notch ensemble of regional players to accompany her for shows that are witty and engaging.
Each jazz concert consists of two 45-minute sets separated by a 15-minute intermission. During intermission, attendees can enjoy Jazz Chats with Carolyne Swayze and special guests, an Art Spotlight Talk, visit the Crocker’s galleries or Museum Store, or grab dinner or drinks at the Crocker Cafe by Supper Club.
Online ticket sales are closed. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door.
