The Third Annual ColaJazz Festival will bring three of the world’s foremost jazz saxophonists to The Senate Columbia. Master saxophonists Tia Fuller and Don Braden will headline the April 4, 2020 event with up-and-comer Alexa Tarantino.

“This year is the centennial of the great saxophonist and bebop innovator Charlie Parker,” said Mark Rapp, ColaJazz artistic director and the South Carolina Jazz Ambassador. “What better way to celebrate one of jazz music’s most influential improvisors than to bring to our state not one but three fiery saxophonists.”

Also appearing will be jazz/soul singer Brittany Turnipseed, a Columbia native and 2018 winner of the Apollo Theater’s Amateur Night Competition. All artists will be backed by top local and regional talent.
