Live in the Lobby: Koger Center Jazz Presents Scotty Barnhart & Wycliffe Gordon: Jazz Masters

Live in the Lobby: Koger Center Jazz is a unique series that was created as a partnership between the Koger Center for the Arts and the ColaJazz Foundation, Koger Center Jazz typically consists of concerts held in the dynamic, open expanse of the Koger Center lobby curated to embody a specific style and era of jazz music. This concert, however, is a Behind the Curtain performance which will take place with the audience and the performers together on the Koger Center for the Arts stage. Thirty minutes before start time, the concerts will kick off with an optional dynamic discussion between the artist and the audience about the music they are about to hear. Join us to experience this one-of-a-kind concert designed for the audience seeking premier jazz and specialty experiences in exceptional settings. Scotty Barnhart and Wycliffe Gordon are both internationally known and respected powerhouse musicians within the jazz community. While they have known each other and worked together since the mid 1980’s it is rare to see a concert that is co-headlined by both of these legends.
