Concert Almost Sold Out. Limited Tickets Available at the Door Only

For the first time ever, Jazz at the Bechtler changes its venue in order to present "Celebrating Five Years: A Jazz at the Bechtler Birthday Bash." In collaboration with the Blumenthal Performing Arts Knight Theater, which is located next to the museum on the Levine Center for the Arts campus, Jazz at the Bechtler will be performed on the Knight Theater stage rather than in the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art lobby.

The concert will be held on January 2, the same date the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art opened in 2010. In celebration of the museum's 5th year, the Ziad Jazz Quartet will be joined by various guest musicians to perform jazz standards and classics. Performers will include:

Noel Friedline, keyboards
Rick Dior, drums
Ron Brendle, acoustic bass
Al Sergel, drums
Jim Brock, percussion
Jon Thornton, trumpet
Rick Simerly, trombone
Toni Tupponce, vocals
Maria Howell, vocals


This concert will be performed from 7 to 9 p.m. with no intermission. Entrance to the concert is through the Bechtler, not the Knight Theater. General audience seating will apply.

The Bechtler's doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for a cash bar in the museum's lobby.

Jazz Affinity Group Members, Firebird Society Members and Modernist Society Members will be admitted 10 minutes prior to general audience seating.


Tickets for this special performance are $25 for non-members and $22 for museum members. Ticket prices for Jazz Affinity Group members, Firebird Society members and Modernist Society members are $18.

Online ticket sales have ended. Limited tickets are available at the door only
