As AFM joins the worldwide celebration of Brubeck’s 100th birthday, we also pay special tribute to Dave Brubeck’s appearances with Anchorage Festival of Music in the 1970s. This multimedia experience combines archival images and recordings from Brubeck’s historic Anchorage performances with timeless Brubeck classics such as Take Five and Blue Rondo à la Turk, performed live by the Melissa “Jazzmom” Fischer Trio. Our special guest host is internationally renowned bass-baritone Carl DuPont, who will also perform Brubeck’s beautiful solo songs.
The concert will showcase Brubeck’s seamless ability to fuse jazz and classical styles as well as his wide emotive range. Listeners will discover Brubeck’s true gifts: the ability to make complex meters accessible and engaging and to create works of wit and humor, even as he was unafraid to confront serious themes of social justice.
Sunday, January 9 Wednesday, April 27 at 7:30 PM Discovery Theater, Alaska Center for the Performing Arts COVID safety protocols will be announced
