The Gibbes Museum and Charleston Jazz are teaming up for our third summer music series, with original compositions inspired by works on view at the Gibbes. Enjoy a specialty cocktail crafted by 5 Church* and listen to some of Charleston’s most talented musicians.
Born and raised in Yerevan, Armenia, composer and pianist Arshak Sirunyan moved to the United States in 2002 and has recorded several acclaimed albums as a leader. In 2014, he released ‘Hoodman’s Blind’ which featured several Grammy Award winning artists, such as Mike Stern, Omar Hakim, and Eric Marienthal. Two of its tracks won 1st place in the 2014 International Songwriting Competition. Our final Art of Jazz concert will feature Arshak on piano, Ben Welles on bass, Ron Wiltrout on drums, and Robert Lewis on saxophone.
*For the second year in a row, 5Church is excited to be on board as the hospitality partner, creating complimentary specialty cocktails designed specifically for the 2019 Art of Jazz performances.
