When You Wish Upon A Star

Celebrate 100 years of Disney through jazz!

Join us for an unforgettable evening as we celebrate 100 years of Disney through the lens of jazz. “Someday My Prince Will Come,” “Heʼs a Tramp,” “Everybody Wants to be a Cat” and “The Bare Necessities” are just a few of the iconic jazz standards youʼll enjoy. The program features the new house band of The National Jazz Museum in Harlem which is curated by artistic directors Jon Batiste and Christian McBride. Pianist and music director Sean Mason brings these famous songs to life along with a five-piece band and two wonderful singers and storytellers.

For more than 80 years, the Artist Series has brought the globe's finest jazz, classical, world music and dance performers to Boulder. Many of these performances sell out; order your tickets today to guarantee the best seats.
