Charles McPherson was born in Joplin and moved to Detroit at the age of nine, where he studied with renowned pianist Barry Harris and started playing jazz professionally at age 19. From there, McPherson’s career would take off, expanding rapidly and taking him to concert venues, festivals, orchestras, and jazz halls across the globe. Having played with some of the best groups and artists that the jazz industry has to offer, McPherson has become a highly revered saxophonist whose work continues to astound and impress. This performance is a collaborative endeavor including The Minnie Hackney Community Service Center of Joplin, George Washington Carver National Monument, Joplin Emancipation Park Days, Missouri Southern State University, Post Art Library, Pro Musica, Spiva Center for the Arts, and Visit Joplin. This is part of a larger homecoming celebration of Charles McPherson. There will also be a ticketed, fundraiser performance at Joplin Empire Market on Friday, February 18, 2022. Tickets: Free; free online reservations recommended. This performance is part of Connect2Culture's Curtains Up Series 2021/2022.
