Onstage Sessions: Jazz

Jazz trumpeter Amir ElSaffar was born to an American mother and an Iraqi father. After studying classical music in the U.S. and Iraqi maqam music in Baghdad, he forged his own path by mixing ornaments and microtones from Arab music with melodies and harmonies from the West. His unique fusion has won him accolades from DownBeat magazine and rowdy ovations at the Newport Jazz Festival.

Onstage Sessions: Jazz
This season we’re introducing a new experience by transforming our stage into a New York-style jazz club and putting you right in the middle of the action. Enjoy a drink at a prime table, or wander through the crowd to mingle with friends as you enjoy jazz’s most fearless artists in an intimate experience, combining close proximity with high octane performances.
