Ivan Renta & Charanga Carolina SATURDAY

Carolina Jazz Festival continues...

Charanga Carolina performs tonight, Saturday (2/27) at Memorial with the UNC Jazz Band, with featured artists Jason Marsalis and Ivan Renta. For the first time, Charanga and the Jazz Band will perform together on a few arrangements: a classic merengue by Papa Molina arranged for big band and charanga, "La Justicia," and Tito Puente's "El Cayuco." I can't find specific ticket price info on this concert, but assume some admission will be charged at the door at Memorial.

Meanwhile, masterclass sessions this afternoon, Saturday (2/27) in the Kenan Music Building rehearsal hall are FREE and open to the public:

1:00pm-2:15pm Masterclass Sessions
Jason Marsalis, drums and vibes
Ivan Renta, saxophone and jazz improvisation

2:30-4:00pm Workshop on Latin Jazz
With Charanga Carolina, David Garcia, Director
With UNC Jazz Band, Jim Ketch, director
With guests: Ivan Renta, tenor sax; Jason Marsalis, drums
