John Chin Trio Reimagines the Music of McCoy Tyner

Jazz
A sought-after musician on the New York jazz scene, pianist John Chin returns to the JAZZ ROOM to share a modern interpretation of the music of one of jazz’s most iconic figures, the great McCoy Tyner.
NEA Jazz Master McCoy Tyner is one of the most influential pianists in jazz history. The John Chin Trio will bring the JAZZ ROOM snapshots of Tyner’s 50 year career.
Featuring:
John Chin on piano
Joe Martin on bass
Rudy Royston on drums
The JAZZ ROOM provides a casual and intimate setting with tables and a full bar, reminiscent of the classic jazz rooms of yesteryear.
McCoy Tyner: Alfred McCoy Tyner was an American jazz pianist known for his work with the John Coltrane Quartet and a long solo career. He was a NEA Jazz Master and a five-time Grammy winner. Not a player of electric keyboards and synthesizers, he was committed to acoustic instrumentation. Tyner, who was widely imitated, was one of the most recognizable and influential pianists in jazz history.
John Chin: Back in the JAZZ ROOM by popular demand, John Chin has been a fixture on the New York Jazz Scene since 1998. Trained at Julliard, mentored by Kenny Barron, John has performed internationally as a leader and sideman, at many major festivals, as well as some of America's most important and storied jazz rooms. He has shared the stage with Ron Carter, Benny Golson, James Brown, Mark Turner, Dayna Stephens, Joel Frahm, John Ellis, Chris Cheek, and Ari Hoenig, among many others.
Thank you to the program sponsors and supporters, who each bring jazz alive in Charlotte: Infusion Fund, Knight Foundation, Doris Duke Foundation, North Carolina Arts Council, and O's Place Jazz.

Clara's Trip: A Cirque & Dance Nutcracker Story

Experimental
Caroline Calouche & Co. is thrilled to be back with their annual holiday treat, Clara’s Trip: A Cirque & Dance Nutcracker Story at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center’s Booth Playhouse on December 16-19.
Clara’s Trip is a contemporary twist on a holiday classic. Artistic Director Caroline Calouche performed the ballet many times in her childhood and dreamed of inventing her version. For the past nine years, her adaptation has brought joy to audiences of all ages. Filled with athletic and high-energy dancing on the ground and in the air, the unique take on the classic story is the perfect holiday treat for your friends and family.
Calouche’s story begins with Clara, a beautiful young and single woman, attending a holiday party hosted by Mr. and Mrs. Flowers. At the party, she meets Beau, who quickly sweeps her off her feet. Clara is a passionate dancer but not the most coordinated. She trips, falls and is whisked off to the hospital to learn that her ankle is broken. Her friends cheer her up with some gifts that come to life in her dreams.
This year, the lead role of Clara will be performed by one of the Charlotte Cirque & Dance Center’s senior students, Zoe Flowers. “She has performed in all nine Clara’s Trips and I could not be more proud of the artist she is becoming,” says Caroline Calouche. Avi Wolf Borouchoff from Philadelphia first performed with CC&Co. in their 2021 Summer Season shows and is back to perform the role of Beau. Two new artists, Abbie Rooney (Kansas City) and Joel Herzfeld (Boston) will perform the lead roles of Mr. and Mrs. Flowers. Expect an incredible, and high-flying, grande pas de deux in Act 2 from those two!
