Description:

Jazz lovers unite on Valentine's Day! The Arts in Action Performance Series at UNCW presents Live at Birdland at Kenan Auditorium in Wilmington, NC. Founded in New York City in 1949, Birdland was a famous nightclub that featured Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonius Monk, and a host of other jazz greats. Live at Birdland recreates that atmosphere, showcasing the Birdland Big Band directed by Tommy Igoe. Featuring classic jazz pieces as well as new arrangements by such luminaries as Sting, Herbie Hancock, and Lennon/McCartney, the show brings the fun of big band music to modern America.
