Win FREE TIX to Chick Corea & Gary Burton @ the Troy Music Hall on Wednesday!

October 15th, 2012, 12:00 pm by Greg

Jazz piano great Chick Corea + vibraphone virtuoso Gary Burton = one stellar night of simply sparkling music…

It’s been four decades since Corea and Burton released their landmark debut duet album, Crystal Silence, and over the years, they’ve recorded several more truly magnificent albums.

Post continues below...

In fact, they released a brand new album, Hot House, just last month, in which the duo explores gems from the catalogs of such diverse composers as Dave Brubeck, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Lennon & McCartney.

The two jazz legends brought their 40th anniversary concert tour to Tanglewood in Lenox back in August, and it was a magnificent, magical night, which also found them sharing the spotlight with the Harlem String Quartet for the second half of the evening. (Read review here…)

If you missed that concert or if you just want to see more, Corea & Burton will be teaming up once again – although without the string quartet this time – to grace the hallowed stage of the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in Troy at 7:30pm on Wednesday night. Tix are $25, $38, $48 & $65.

BUT WAIT… we’re giving away a pair of FREE TIX for Wednesday’s concert to a lucky Nippertown reader! To enter the contest, just post a comment below. Please leave your email address, too. We won’t publish it, but we’ll use it to contact you if you win. The winner will be selected at random and notified on Wednesday. Good luck! Congratulations to the winner, who has been notified by email.
