Join us for a luxurious trip to see the Tomasz Stanko Quintet at the annual San Francisco Jazz Festival
Sunday, April 11, 2010 from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
Sacramento, United States
Join Capital Public Radio for a trip to see the Tomasz Stanko Quintet at the San Francisco Jazz Festival Sunday, April 11. Concert seats, museum admission*, gourmet dinner, motor coach transportation, and fine wines are all included, but space is limited.
Capital Public Radio is chartering a motor coach to the Palace of Legion of Honor to enjoy the international jazz sounds of the Tomasz Stanko Quintet. A bandleader of great integrity, Polish trumpeter Stanko is among the most revered of European jazz musicians. His pristine recordings for ECM have drawn international critical praise. The New York Times reported, “Stanko’s records of the last six years, with their elegiac moods and clean, controlled lyricism have become a primary reference point for current European jazz.”
Our travel package includes entry to the museum grounds and galleries*, the 2 pm concert at the Gould Theatre, and a gourmet early evening dinner at Poggio -- a classic Italian trattoria in scenic Sausalito. * Admission to the Cartier exhibit is an additional $10
