John Beasley's MONK'estra (Cancelled)

John Beasley's MONK'estra (Cancelled)

Presented by Mondavi Center, UC Davis at Mondavi Center - Jackson Hall

NOTE: Out of respect for the health and safety of the UC Davis campus and community of arts lovers, the Mondavi Center is canceling all remaining public events for  the 2019–20 season.

Coming on the heels of a world premiere at Walt Disney Hall, MONK + MONK’estra is a cinematic experience that draws on rare performance footage to bring the idiosyncratic genius of the pianist, composer and cultural icon to life on a screen above the band.

Under the masterful direction of Grammy nominated pianist, arranger and composer John Beasley, the 15-piece MONK’estra captures the spirit of Thelonious Monk’s singular music in fresh arrangements flavored with contemporary sounds that range from Afro-Cuban rhythms to hip-hop.
