Join Charleston Jazz Express as they explore the international influence of jazz and the genre’s ability to unite people and cultures from all corners of the globe. Influenced by West African culture and European classical music, an adventurous new style of music emerged in America at the dawn of the 20th century. Jazz quickly found its way beyond the borders of New Orleans, emanating its sound and message around the world. Led by Robert Lewis and made up of Charleston Jazz Orchestra members, this 10-piece ensemble is an accomplished group of jazz musicians and an example of the rich history and legacy of jazz in Charleston. Chairs/blankets are encouraged as no seating is provided. Feel free to pack a picnic, too!
