The fifth anniversary of A Jazz Happening, a dazzling one-night jazz celebration featuring students alongside Broadway stars, is taking place on Sunday, August 2011, at 8:00 p.m. in the Ted Shaw Theatre at Jacob's Pillow in Becket, MA.
Directed by veteran Broadway producer Chet Walker, A Jazz Happening features original choreography by leading artists. Tickets are $75 for the performance, or $100 for performance, premium seating and reception with the dancers, and can be purchased online.
Earlier this year, Jacob's Pillow was awarded a National Medal of Arts by President Barack Obama at a White House ceremony, in recognition of the institution's role as one of America's most cherished cultural groups.
