Charlie Porter | 8:00 PM
As a multi-genre virtuoso trumpeter, Charlie Porter has toured the world as a side-man and band-leader in jazz and also as a classical soloist and chamber musician, working with many notable musicians and groups over the last twenty years. Following in the footsteps of his mentor, Wynton Marsalis, Porter has delved into many projects over the years, from jazz and classical to Arabic, Indian, African, Australian Aboriginal and Korean music, seeking to find common ground among all "good music" and avoiding the pigeon holdings of being a "jazz" or "classical" trumpeter/composer. No doubt, touring with his quartet throughout India, China, West Africa and Southeast Asia as part of Jazz at Lincoln Center's American Music Abroad program, was highly influential in shaping Charlie's inclusive view of music.

As a composer, Charlie has been commissioned by the Doris Duke Foundation and Chamber Music America. more >>>
