and the
Pharoah Sanders Quartet

October 1-7, 2017

Celebrating its 40th year, the John Coltrane Memorial Concert (JCMC) is the world’s oldest annual performance tribute to the musical and spiritual legacy of the great master. JCMC believes, as did ‘Trane, that music can be a force to make the world a better place:

For this banner year, which happens to coincide with the 50th anniversary year of Coltrane’s death (d. July 17, 1967), JCMC has scheduled a week-long series of events, combined with a month-long photo exhibit, providing insight into the many ways to really hear and view ‘Trane, who harbored such a strong belief that the power of his music could affect positive social change. It is a week to jump on board the ‘Trane phenomenon.
