A year-long celebration: Charlie Parker 101

Bird Lives!  During the 2021-22 academic year, The Department of Music is hosting a year-long celebration of the legendary Charlie Parker. To kick off the programming, we welcomed renowned saxophonist Branford Marsalis to the UNC Charlotte campus on August 30 for an afternoon of masterclasses with music students and an evening program that's part conversation, part demonstration. The celebration continues throughout the year with other collaborative events, presentations, and learning. Celebrate with us! →
