Family Concert: Who is Chick Corea?

What To Expect

  • An inspiring, educational, and fun show about the life and music of a living legend
  • Arrive early for pre-concert activities

Our Family Concerts are always a good time, and this fun afternoon show will entertain and inspire you—whether you’re already a jazz lover, or perhaps simply wondering, “Who is Chick Corea?”

Pianist, composer, and living legend Chick Corea has found endless delight in uncovering new musical wonders. Through acoustic and electric jazz, inspired duets, and all sorts of bold “fusions,” this musical explorer has remained one of the most popular figures in music, earning 24 Grammy Awards (and counting) while maintaining the deepest respect of his peers.

This hour-long educational program will feature live performances of Chick’s game-changing music and tell the inspiring story of a lifelong dreamer with a legacy built alongside Miles Davis, Return to Forever, Herbie Hancock, Béla Fleck, and even the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. Great for audiences of all ages, this show will open new doors for you to explore the exciting musical world of Chick Corea. Featuring trumpeter, former Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra member, and host Sean Jones as well as young pianists Sean Mason, Micah Thomas, and Tyler Henderson.

Please note, Chick Corea will not appear on this performance.
