Pro Musica presents the Brubeck Brothers (jazz) Quartet on Friday, April 24, 2020, in Corley Auditorium on the campus of Missouri Southern State University, 3950 Newman Rd, Joplin. The concert starts at 7:30 PM with doors opening at 6:30 PM.
Although the quartet’s style is rooted in “straight-ahead” jazz, their concerts reveal an inherent ability to explore and play odd time signatures while naturally integrating the influences of funk, blues and world music. The group’s creativity, technique and improvisation can be heard in their uncompromising music, which reflects their dedication to melody, rhythm, culture and the spontaneous spirit of jazz.
These versatile musicians also collaborate with orchestras, and in 2006 ignited the Salt Lake City Jazz Festival by playing with the Utah Symphony conducted by Keith Lockhart. With Chris Brubeck’s compositions as a vehicle, the BBQ has joined with chamber groups to collaborate with musicians from the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Russian National Symphony Orchestra.
Tickets, $15 Adults and $10 Students, will be available for purchase on March 1, 2020.
The public performance of the Brubeck Brothers Quartet is sponsored, in part, by Kip & Bonnie Yetter, Charles Keeter & Annette Thurston, and the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
