More Details:

  • Trumpeter Charles Lazarus and his guests will touch all the bases, from Latin to lounge, from groove to gospel, from Minnesota to Mardi Gras.
  • The program features sassy and soulful vocals, high-energy soloists, and the stellar Lazarus Brass (some of whom have full-time gigs with the Minnesota Orchestra).
  • Charles Lazarus has opened for Tony Bennett, been a member of the Canadian Brass and taught at Princeton. His 2016 Valentine’s Day concert, Fly Me to the Moon, sold out every seat in Orchestra Hall!
