Geoffrey Bradfield Quartet
Join us for a free jazz concert in the ENTRANCE ATRIUM due to weather. Bring your own lawn chair. We’ll provide fresh popcorn, the atmosphere, and some amazing jazz. Picnicking encouraged; no cash bar this summer.
The Geoffrey Bradfield Quartet features Geof Bradfield (saxophone), Ben Waltzer (piano), Dennis Carroll (bass), and Dana Hall (drums).
Geof Bradfield has shared the stage throughout North America, Europe, Russia, Asia, Africa and the Middle East with jazz luminaries such as Randy Weston, Carl Allen, Brian Blade, Rodney Whitaker, Etienne Charles, Joe Locke, and Orrin Evans.
Bradfield’s work is featured on 50+ CDs, including six albums as a leader that have garnered critical accolades. A committed educator, Bradfield is Associate Professor of Jazz Studies at Northern Illinois University and has given master classes and lectures at the Brubeck Institute, the Manhattan School of Music, the Jazz Education Network conference, and numerous other national and international venues.
In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be moved indoors.
