Arts Under the Dome to feature jazz trio


The concert series Arts Under The Dome will present Chris Brubeck and Triple Play at 7 p.m. Feb. 22.

Brubeck, the son of jazz legend Dave Brubeck, has teamed up his talents on bass, piano and trombone with Peter Madcat Ruth on harmonica and guitarist Joel Brown for an evening of jazz, funk, blues, folk, classical and familiar Brubeck standards.

Chris Brubeck is a noted composer and arranger and has appeared with numerous major performers, as well as recording with the Brubeck Brothers and Dave Brubeck Quartets.  Performance Magazine calls Ruth a “harmonica virtuoso approaching legend status.” Brown is a soloist with major orchestras throughout the world. 

The venue is Gulfport First United Methodist Church. Tickets are $10 adults and $7 students, and may be purchased in advance from the church or at the door. Concerts remaining in the 2008 season are Dallas Brass on March 9 and Jay Ungar and Molly Mason on April 13.
