SCMC will require proof of fully-vaccinated status, or a negative COVID test taken within 48 hours, for anyone age 12 or older to attend a concert at our venue. In areas with substantial and high transmission, the CDC recommends that everyone (including fully vaccinated individuals) wear a mask in public indoor settings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, especially the Delta variant, and to protect others. To that end, SCMC is requiring all attendees—regardless of age or vaccination status—to wear a mask while in the building. Attendees will need to bring photo ID and proof of vaccination, or a negative test, the night of a concert.

All staff, volunteers and artists entering the venue are required to be fully vaccinated as well. This policy is in line with many other venues, presenters, promoters and artists and is meant to ensure, as best we can, that live music returns to the stage this season.

If you have tickets to an upcoming performance and are unwilling or unable to abide by this policy please contact our box office at least 48 hours before the performance for a refund at kelly@scmc-online.org.

TWO GRAMMY WINNERS SHARE THE STAGE

Over the course of a multifaceted career spanning four decades, Grammy and Tony Award-winning jazz giant DEE DEE BRIDGEWATER has ascended to the upper echelon of vocalists, putting her unique spin on standards, as well as taking intrepid leaps of faith in re-envisioning jazz classics. Ever the fearless voyager, explorer, pioneer and keeper of tradition, the three-time Grammy winner won the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album in 2011.

One of the world’s premier jazz pianists, BILL CHARLAP has performed and recorded with many leading artists of our time, ranging from jazz masters Phil Woods and Wynton Marsalis to singers Tony Bennett and Barbra Streisand. In 2016 Charlap won the Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. Since 1997, he has led the Bill Charlap Trio, now recognized as one of the leading groups in jazz.

“Dee Dee Bridgewater has the technique and musicality that beats most performers of her generation.” The Guardian (UK)

“Charlap approaches a song the way a lover approaches his beloved…when he sits down to play, the result is an embrace, an act of possession. The tune rises, falls, disappears and resurfaces in a new form as Charlap ranges over the keyboard with nimble, crisply swinging lines, subtly layered textures, dense chords and spiky interjections.” – TIME Magazine
