Back in May 2020, when St. Cecilia Music Center (SCMC) announced the 2020-21 season, it was the most expansive season in their 137-year history. One of the most exiting elements of the announcement was a three-day music festival scheduled for February 2021 entitled WinterFest – Christian McBride and Friends. This three-night extravaganza would feature Grammy-award winning bassist Christian McBride each night with a different musical pairing or ensemble. When forced to cancel concerts due to COVID-19, the loss of the first year of this unprecedented festival was heartbreaking.
But there is GOOD NEWS! The live WinterFest event has been rescheduled for February 24-26, 2022.
AND – SCMC will be presenting the concert that was to happen on stage on February 25, 2021 in a virtual setting with Christian McBride and Edgar Meyer.
Join SCMC for this show featuring solo performances by Christian and Edgar, as well as a post-concert conversation with the artists. Because making music together is not ideal remotely, each bassist will give you 20 minutes of solo performance and then the two artists will join together in conversation. Submit questions for these bass masters when you purchase your ticket and they will answer as many questions as they can.
Purchase the ticket link for $15 and have a 48-hour viewing window from 7:00PM on February 25, 2021 until 7:00PM on February 27, 2021. Tickets are on sale now!
