The Hornet's Nest

CHARLOTTE, NC - Come to see the famous saxophonist Branford Marsalis on the UNC Charlotte campus. The College of Arts and Architecture is happy to announce that he will come on Monday, August 30.

After leading a workshop with music students in the afternoon, Marsalis will kick off the Department of Music's year-long celebration of the iconic Charlie Parker with an evening presentation that will be equal parts talk and demonstration, according to the department.

Afterwards, Marsalis will speak about Parker and then participate in discussions with music faculty and students, which will include questions from the public to further examine his unique viewpoint on jazz music, music performance, artist-citizenship, and his illustrious career.

We have reduced the capacity of the Belk Theater in order to provide the highest level of safety for our audience and participants. There is a stringent limit on the number of seats available, and masks are required.

There are a limited amount of $35 certificates available. A limited amount of common admission tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. As a result, the presentation will be live-streamed on Vimeo at the same time, with streaming tickets available for a donation of any amount.
