Steinberg Family Sculpture Garden, 1st Floor (rain location: Beaux-Arts Court)
Swing by the Museum’s backyard Sculpture Garden for performances by some of the city’s best musicians, and enjoy a range of creative styles incorporating blues, jazz, and international sounds. Presented in partnership with Jazz Foundation of America.
In August, catch St. Louis–born drummer, percussionist, keyboardist, composer, arranger, bandleader, and educator Ronnie Burrage, who draws from jazz, funk, and soul. Burrage performed with Duke Ellington at the age of nine and later collaborated with many acts that informed his style, including the Oliver Sain Band, Defunkt, and the Burrage Band. His current group, Holographic Principle, performs Burrage’s own compositions and imaginatively reworked standards.
