Kente Arts Alliance would like to thank all of our supporters for their generous donations through the recent PittsburghGives campaign sponsored by the Pittsburgh Foundation. We appreciate your enthusiasm and you have inspired us to do more. Your donations will be used to present a great new series for the upcoming 2014-15 season.
We plan to present a two-part series in the fall 2014 entitled Alto Madness. The series will highlight jazz musicians who display their amazing artistry through the alto saxophone.
Tony Campbell and Roby “The Saxman” Edwards will be featured in a double-bill, Saturday, October 18, 2014 at the Kelly-Strayhorn Theater. Special guest artist Yoko Suzuki, an up and coming alto saxophone player will also appear.
Kenny Garrett, nationally and internationally-known Grammy-award winning artist will be featured in the second segment of the series, scheduled at the New Hazlett Theater for Saturday, December 13, 2014.
Tickets will be available soon. Stay connected to Kente Arts Alliance for information.

This iconic artist is best known for his Grammy-nominated hit single, Grazing in the Grass which sold over 4 million copies in 1968 and made him an international star. He later played an integral role in Paul Simon’s tour behind the classic album Graceland, which was one of the first pop records to introduce African music to a broader public.
