Pittsburgh jazzman to play holiday concert at The Westmoreland
Pittsburgh saxophonist Benny Benack II and his band will perform on Dec. 19 in The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg.
Set for 6:30-9 p.m., the holiday jazz concert is part of the museum’s quarterly Great American Music Series, featuring homegrown music styles such as indie rock, bluegrass, jazz, pop country and Latin American rhythm.
Benack is part of a well-known musical family. His father, trumpeter Benny Benack, was a staple of the Pittsburgh jazz scene in the 1960 and ’70s and was even known as the local “king of Dixieland.” His son, Benny Benack III, is a New York City-based jazz trumpeter and vocalist.
Concert-goers will have access to a cash bar with beer, wine, soft drinks and specialty cocktails. Food will be available from Elegant Catering.
Early arrivals can check out the museum galleries before they close at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $25, $10 for students, or free to ages 18 and under.
