Fly Us to the Moon

Benny Benack III

June 10 @ 8:00 pm


Join us for Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall’s last annual benefit before closing the Hall for ambitious renovations.

Who better than Benny, his trio and you to take the Library & Music Hall on its final journey to a beautifully restored Carnegie Carnegie Hall?

NYC-based Benny Benack III is a third generation Pittsburgh Jazzman. Following in the footsteps of his trumpeter/bandleader grandfather and saxophonist/clarinetist father, “BB3” is his own brand of fiery trumpet player, smooth vocalist and showman extraordinaire. Chart-topping vocalist, Michael Stephenson, is a soulful complement to BB3’s signature style.

Benny will serve up an evening of standards à la Sinatra, interspersed with the improvisational/free jazz styles of Thelonious Monk and Ornette Coleman — leavened with a dollop of “pure Pittsburgh.”

This night of memorable music will be followed by a lively after-theater party throughout the ACFL&MH’s beautiful historic landmark facility that — weather permitting — will spill out into our fabulous new Library Park.
