American Masters Featuring Branford Marsalas

Branford Marsalis July 14-20

Saxophonist Branford Marsalis is an avatar of musical excellence. A three-time Grammy Award winner, he has been nominated for a Tony and an EMMY, as a composer, and was recognized as a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts.

An ensemble player extraordinaire, he joins the North Country Chamber Players for a program of music by American Masters, old and new, from George Gershwin to Valerie Coleman.


Valerie Coleman: American Vein for oboe and double bass

Ellen Taafe Zwillich: Quintet for alto sax and string quartet

Rufus Reid: Cross Currents for alto sax, double bass and piano

Valerie Coleman: Maombi asante for flute, violin and ‘cello

George Gershwin: Song Medley


The North Country Chamber Players have adopted a “Pay-What-You-Wish” ticket pricing for concerts. Seating is limited, so attendees are asked to make free online reservations.
The recommended ticket price is $25, payable at the door, but there is no minimum ticket price required for entry.
