Transcend ordinary sounds with an electrifying night with Lakecia Benjamin in concert.
Her talent has been recognized by the Downbeat Critics Poll, which voted her as the "Rising Star Alto Saxophonist" in 2020, and the Jazz Journalists Association, which named her the "Up and Coming Artist of the Year."
Her tribute to Alice and John Coltrane in her successful release of “Pursuance” in 2020 showcases her artistic growth, while her latest album, “Phoenix,” released in 2023, proves her continued success. As the 2023 Jazz Scholar Fellow and mini-residency performer at the Library of Congress, Benjamin will inspire and educate through both her performance and educational engagement.
There will be no pre-concert talk for this event.
