Due to forecasted weather, tonight's free concert with Lakecia Benjamin has been moved indoors to the Collis Center.

An expansive alto-saxophonist melds R&B, jazz and funk.

With a warm resonant tone, an innovative approach and dynamic delivery, the three-time Grammy-nominee infuses traditional jazz elements with modern flair. Her powerful alto sax solos and magnetic stage presence captivate audiences and transport them on a unique musical journey from smooth ballads to upbeat grooves.

At the Hop, Benjamin performs works from her latest project Phoenix, a deeply personal 12-track album performed by her septet. Phoenix featured many guests including Dianne Reeves, Georgia Ann Muldrow, Patrice Rushen, Wayne Shorter, Wallace Roney, Sonia Sanchez and Angela Davis. The album, inspired by a catastrophic car accident she survived in 2021 as well as the global issues of racism, the pandemic and inequality, led to three Grammy nominations and universal praise.

This event is free and unticketed.
