Anat Cohen Quartetinho
Featuring Vitor Gonçalves, Tal Mashiach, and James Shipp Ever charismatic, prolific and inspired, Grammy-nominated clarinetist-saxophonist Anat Cohen has won hearts and minds the world over with her expressive virtuosity and delightful stage presence. As The Wall Street Journal says, “What’s not to love about a young clarinetist and saxophonist who plays everything we love – modern jazz, world music, “hot” New Orleans style jazz – and does it all brilliantly?” The perennial winner of “Clarinetist of the Year” titles from DownBeat, JazzTimes, and the Jazz Journalists Association, Fresh Air’s Terry Gross credits Cohen with “bringing the clarinet to the world” and The New York Times hails her a “Master.” A unique blend of modern and traditional jazz, classical music, Brazilian choro, Argentine tango, and an expansive timeline of Afro-Cuban styles, the Anat Cohen Quartet is a musical tour-de-force that propels the clarinet to its rightful place at the forefront of jazz. Performing repertoire spanning Anat’s career and deep catalog of recordings, the Quartet has been Anat’s core ensemble through the years. Band Line-Up Anat Cohen Vitor Gonçalves Tal Mashiach James Shipp New Subscriptions available on July 13th Individual tickets available on August 3rd

Beth Hart
Up until recently, Los Angeles native Beth Hart was best known for her hit "LA Song (Out of This Town)," which was featured on the original "Bevery Hills 90210." But it's in recent times that Hart has truly blossomed. In April 2015, she released "Better Than Home," a critical and commercial smash that topped the iTunes blues chart and was crowned No. 4 "Best Blues Album Of The Year" by Mojo magazine. Already a star in Europe, the U.S. has embraced her, too. she received a nomination from the American Blues Foundation in the category of "Contemporary Blues Female Artist." But maybe her greatest live performance to date was seen by millions of television viewers, when her tribute to Buddy Guy on the "Kennedy Center Honors" special received one of the only two standing ovations of the evening.
