Al Strong: Jazz Is My Religion


Join the North Carolina Museum of History to celebrate African American Music Appreciation Month  with a special concert of jazz music performed by award-winning trumpet player, composer, recording artist, and educator Al Strong. Strong will be joined by a string quartet to amplify this performance. 

A cultural innovator, he is the co-founder of the nonprofit the Art of Cool Project, which spawned the internationally recognized Art of Cool Music Festival.

Strong is lauded for his unique sound. Whether melting hearts at a whisper or delivering piercing musical intensity while being gracefully dynamic, his natural ability to strike listeners at their core is unmatched.
