Jazz at the NCMA

The NCMA’s Thursday evening concert series celebrates the transcendent power of jazz, one of the US’s greatest exports to the world, as well as jazz’s African American origins and its intersections with other musical genres.

Now in its second season, Jazz at the NCMA allows attendees to experience a musical palette that centers on the improvisational spirit of traditional jazz but also includes the rhythms, harmonies, and grooves of smooth jazz, funk, soul, R&B, fusion, bebop, and more. This season’s lineup features nine Grammy winners and two Grammy-nominated artists. All concerts are held in the award-winning Joseph M. Bryan, Jr., Theater in the Museum Park and begin at 7 pm. Gates open at 5:30 pm.
