Through live performances of some of Brubeck’s greatest works, you’ll hear why his music remains so popular and enjoyable, from the unusual rhythms that made Time Out a record-selling album, to his lively and distinctive solo pieces.

Designed to entertain and inform audiences of all ages, this show honors a one-of-a-kind musician, educator, and champion of social and civil rights.
