THE JAZZ ROOM
Jazz trumpeter and vocalist Jeremy Davenport tackles the tunes of Frank Sinatra. The Jazz Room is a monthly series, offering different performers and themes with each show.

The Bechtler’s Modernism + Film program returns with this screening. Presenting the film is Emily Gunzburger Makaš, associate professor of architectural and urban history at UNC Charlotte.
An intimate 200-seat theater is used to premiere new works from the likes of Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux, Mark Diamond, Dwight Rhoden, and Sasha Janes. Meet the dancers and choreographers after to discuss their creations and, presumably, whatever else is on your mind.
HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING

This center, located in an old church uptown, focuses on art and artists within the Charlotte community. ENCUENTROS/ENCOUNTERS (through March 21) comes from Windgate Artists-in-Residence Dignicraft.

THE TIME JUMPERS
Nashville’s greatest studio players came together to form this season ensemble. Perhaps the group’s most high-profile member is Vince Gill, but every musician gets a chance to shine with this show.
Rivera’s shows celebrate her 80th birthday, and the Broadway legend will revisit the productions that made her a star with this performance. Look out for tunes from Kiss of the Spider Woman, West Side Story, and Bye, Bye, Birdie.
