Edgar Meyer and Christian McBride, bass

A rare and exciting evening of double-bass virtuosity. McBride, an iconic jazz musician and six-time Grammy winner, is praised for his energetic and fiery approach to the instrument and has been likened to a force of nature onstage.  Meyer, a classical bassist who has toured with Yo-Yo Ma, Béla Fleck, Chris Thile and others, is been praised as being “not only a legitimate heir to this tradition, but also a great energizing factor to the field” by The New York Times. (He’s also a Blair adjunct professor.)

Weaving together jazz and classical influences with the force and fire of two award-winning string musicians, this innovative performance will take the bass from the background and onto center stage. Sure to be an unforgettable evening.

Parking for this event is available for free in West Garage (2500 Children’s Way) through the Children’s Way entrance.
