Along the way he has earned nine Grammy Awards, the National Medal of Arts, France’s Chevalier of the Legion of Honor, honorary membership to Britain’s Royal Academy of Music, and the George Foster Peabody Award, in addition to being the first jazz musician to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music.
The renowned musician leads his quintet for this intimate evening in Pfleeger Concert Hall on the Glassboro campus. A limited number of $100 VIP tickets are available for purchase, and include premium seating and a pre-performance reception, standard orchestra tickets are available for $60 and mezzanine tickets are $40. Wheelchair and companion seats can also be purchased online via rowan.tix.com, and wheelchair accessible parking is available just steps from the venue.
This performance is part of the 19|20 Marie Rader Presenting Series, which enriches the university community and the region through expanded performing arts programming. This year’s series lineup also includes Rennie Harris Puremovement, the revolutionary Philadelphia-based street dance company, on February 22 at 8:00 p.m. and the one-of-a-kind puppetry of The Cashore Marionettes on March 28 at 8:00 p.m. More information on the Marie Rader Presenting Series can be found online.
The series is made possible in part through generous support from the Henry M. Rowan Family Foundation via the Marie F. Rader Memorial Fund. Programming is also made possible by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
