Soka Performing Arts Center
Soka Performing Arts Center presents Maria Schneider Orchestra Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at 8 p.m. FOR MORE INFORMATION: soka.edu
Blue Note at Sea is now a collaboration of the talents and efforts of Blue Note Records (a legendary force in jazz), Blue Note Jazz Club (an international jazz icon) and Entertainment Cruise Productions (leading producer of jazz cruises). Entertainment Cruise Productions began this program under the name "The Contemporary Jazz Cruise", but when it became possible to add the "Blue Note" expertise and heritage to the program, the decision to form the partnership and change the name of the cruise was made quickly and with great excitement.

Blue Note at Sea will follow the mission of The Contemporary Jazz Cruise to present the finest jazz performers who are internationally recognized as being in the forefront of jazz today. Our goal is to be the hippest jazz cruise in the world. Combining great music with great food, service, accommodations and events will attract an international group of guests, all of whom contributing to what will certainly be the Jazz Event of the Season.
