SEASON KICK-OFF!
THE CHICK COREA /

Artistic icon Chick Corea has 22 Grammy wins—the most of any jazz artist, ever! He is both one of the most influential jazz artists of his generation and one of the greatest living jazz pianists. Chick and drummer Steve Gadd’s musical partnership is the stuff of legend—but the music is always new. It’s a coup to bring these venerated maestros to Rhode Island—catch them live on the brink of their new album release this fall!
