Mt. Bachelor Riverhouse Jazz: Regina Carter Quintet
Fri, Feb 16 - Sat, Feb 17
Bend has emerged as a hub of jazz in Oregon. Mt. Bachelor Riverhouse Jazz features two shows (Friday & Saturday) on one weekend each month, from October to April. Our shows feature some of the world’s greatest musicians from jazz, blues, soul and R&B.
The foremost jazz violinist in generations, Regina Carter (Aretha Franklin, Billy Joel, Wynton Marsalis) brings her quintet from New York City, blending a range of musical influences, including Motown, Gospel, Afro-Cuban, Swing, Bebop, Folk, World, Cajun and, yes, even country. Ms. Carter received a MacArthur Fellowship ("genius grant") in 2006, is a graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music, and has performed at many of the most esteemed performance venues in the world, including Lincoln Center, the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts and Italy's Teatro Carlos Felice. Carter is pioneering new and exciting possibilities for an instrument that as long been defined by the classical tradition.
