The Gibbes teams up with Charleston Jazz for yet another summer music series featuring original compositions inspired by works currently on display at the museum (which is awesome, by the way). Dynamic pianist and composer Richard White heads to the Gibbes this Wednesday, joined by bassist Brett Belanger and drummer David Patterson. White studied classical piano for a decade as a youth and has recently completed an international jazz tour. He’s opened for Branford Marsalis, Will Downing, Brian McKnight, and Alex Bugnon. During the performance you can sip on a specially crafted cocktail from 5Church.
Wed. June 19 at 6 p.m. $25/non-members, $20/members, $10/student, faculty. Gibbes Museum of Art, 135 Meeting St. Downtown. gibbesmuseum.org
