Jazz at the Bechtler: Jazz for Lovers featuring Toni Tupponce
LOCATION: BECHTLER MUSEUM OF MODERN ART
FEBRUARY 3 AT 6 AND 8:15 PM
JAZZ FOR LOVERS
*Tickets to both the 6 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. shows are sold out. There will be no walkup tickets available at the door.*
Perhaps no other music genre tells us more about love in all its varied shades than jazz. From its openly sentimental ballads and teary torch songs to its fiery declarations of new love and playful odes to significant others, jazz numbers hit all the marks. In its sixth year at the Bechtler, the Ziad Jazz Quartet – with guest vocalist Toni Tupponce – knows well how to evoke the moods of love for Valentine’s Day.
Bring your sweetie February 3 and celebrate an early Valentine's Day with jazzy love songs. Things are bound to get heated as Tupponce, voted “sexiest voice in Charlotte” by Charlotte magazine in 2006, croons romantic tunes.
