Presiding over consciousness-expanding arrangements of Sly and the Family Stone, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton, Allen Toussaint, The Band, and more — with a wicked horn section — trumpeter and bandleader Steven Bernstein whips up a blowout Free Day concert that will alter your brain chemistry.
With Bernstein on horns, the band features Duane Eubanks (trumpet), Arthur Baron (trombone), Curtis Fowlkes (trombone), Oscar Noriega (sax and clarinet), Erik Lawrence (saxophones of all kinds), Ben Stapp (tuba), and Billy Martin of Medeski Martin & Wood on percussion.
Join us in the galleries for the museum’s annual Free Day, from 11am to 7pm.
What to expect
Dance! Dance! Some seating will be available in the Hunter Center. A full bar serves Bright Idea Brewing beers and Berkshire Mountain Distillery spirits.
Planning on dinner before the show? Our museum café Lickety Split rolls out a menu of favorites including Vermont black bean burgers, Angus burgers, tasty paninis, quiche, and an array of fresh salads featuring field greens, goat cheese, and grilled pineapple, all priced at $10 or less.
