Virtual Jazz at the Bechtler: Jazz for Lovers ft. Toni Tupponce

Virtual Jazz at the Bechtler: Jazz for Lovers ft. Toni Tupponce

Livestreaming from The Playroom
Friday, February 5 at 7 p.m.

Perhaps no other music genre tells us more about love in all its varied shades than jazz. From its openly sentimental ballads and teary torch songs to its fiery declarations of new love and playful odes to significant others, jazz numbers hit all the marks. 

This month, the Ziad Jazz Quartet – with guest vocalist Toni Tupponce – evoke the many moods of love for Valentine’s Day with a playlist of jazzy love songs including “Better Than Anything” by Al Jarreau, “I Turn To You” by Kirk Whalum, and “On The Sunny Side Of The Street” by Nat “King” Cole.

Toni Tupponce will be accompanied by Ziad Rabie (saxophone), Noel Freidline (piano), Al Sergel (drums), and Ron Brendle (bass).


When our doors temporarily closed in March 2020, the Bechtler remained fully committed to offering the joys of jazz, free of charge to all, during this time. Taking into consideration the current state of health affairs, the Bechtler has temporarily closed again through February 12, 2021 to help curb the spread of COVID-19. We anticipate Jazz at the Bechtler will remain virtual through June 2021.

Beginning with our February 5th Jazz concert, Virtual Jazz at the Bechtler concerts will continue FREE for members; and $10 per household for not-yet-members. If you are interested in learning more about our membership levels, please click here.
