Summer Jazz Series: Ben Rosenblum Trio


Location: Mary Loretto & Terrence J. Dillon Courtyard, Snite Museum of Art (View on map )


Spend your summer evening grooving to jazz in the Mary Loretto & Terrence J. Dillon Courtyard. Enjoy a cash bar, freshly popped popcorn, and featured works of art during every concert. Bring your own blanket or lawn chair.

The Ben Rosenblum Trio features Ben Rosenblum (piano), Curtis Lundy (bass), and Billy Hart (drums).

Rosenblum is based primarily in New York City, and is a graduate of the Columbia-Juilliard program. His original music combines his extensive knowledge of the history of jazz with a free-wheeling, modern melodic sensibility and powerful narrative approach to the piano. His profound passion for jazz, swing and world music genres finds expression in his unique fusion of harmonic and rhythmic elements from a wide array of sources, and gives rise to a signature compositional sound and style at once iconoclastic and deeply rooted in such figures as Bill Evans and Wynton Kelly. Rosenblum ’s first priority in his composition and playing is always narrative – to tell a compelling story with his music, while reaching the hearts of his audience, connecting on an emotional, an intellectual and a spiritual level.

All Museum galleries and exhibitions are also open.

Convenient, free parking available in the Bulla Road Lot off of Twyckenham Drive. A shuttle runs continuously between the lot, the Hesburgh Library, and the Museum until 7:45 p.m. Parking (with no shuttle) is also available in the B1 and C1 lots south of the Stadium.

Series curated by Stephen and Mary Merriman of Merrimans’ Playhouse.
