Suite Life Tribute Concert
One of the most accomplished trumpeters operating today. —All About Jazz
The eighth annual celebration of the life and legacy of pianist, composer and KST namesake Billy Strayhorn also marks the 100th anniversary of his birth. For this special occasion, Grammy Award-winning trumpeter Sean Jones performs with the Pittsburgh Jazz Orchestra in an unforgettable evening of artistry. Expect to hear extraordinary renditions of classic Strayhorn compositions—such as Take the ‘A’ Train, Chelsea Bridge and Lush Life—among other works that reflect Strayhorn’s profound influence. And to top it off, this benefit event always ends sweetly, with a birthday cake for all.
Join the pre-show celebration at the Lush Life Masquerade.
Proceeds from Suite Life benefit the Strayhorn Legacy Fund, supporting youth and family programming at KST.
