Kente All-Stars II. Presented by Kente Arts Alliance

August 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

With the health, well-being, and comfort of all as our top priorities, City of Asylum requires that our staff, artists, and all those attending an event be fully vaccinated. Please click here to learn more about our Covid 19 policies. 

Kente All-Stars II rounds out Kente’s Summer Madness Series and its spotlight on renowned jazz musicians from the region. 

This all-star formation includes three of Pittsburgh’s most recognized and favored artists: Dwayne Dolphin, bass; Tom Wendt, drums; and Alton Merrill, piano. Joining them as their special guest is alto saxophonist Antonio Hart. Hart balances his time between Queens College’s Aaron Copland School of Music (where he is tenured professor), and the road, where he plays with his own band—the Dave Holland Big Band—as well as the Dizzy Gillespie Big Band.

Featured musicians:

Antonio Hart: alto saxophone

Dwayne Dolphin: bass

Thomas Wendt: drums

Alton Merrell: piano
