This is a guest post from the Secrest Artists Series:

On March 22, Branford Marsalis, saxaphone player extraordinaire, will cap the 2017-18 season of the Secrest Artists Series with an evening of improvised music by his internationally recognized jazz quartet.  The performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. in Wait Chapel.

One of the world’s foremost musicians in both jazz and classical music, Marsalis has been honored with three Grammy Awards, and cited as a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Enrich your concert-going experience by joining a pre-performance talk at 6:30 p.m. in Wait Chapel. The talk will be led by Ali Sakkal, who teaches in the University’s Department of Education.  It will feature a discussion with Marsalis. Arrive early to get best seats. Doors will open at 6:15 p.m.
