February 21, 2011

St. Cecilia Music Center is proud to present the legendary McCoy Tyner in a special performance on January 27, 2011. McCoy Tyner is a five-time Grammy Award winner and NEA Jazz Master. Mr. Tyner is hailed globally as a master pianist, jazz stylist and one of the best living composers of the genre. At 17 McCoy Tyner began a career-changing relationship with Miles Davis’ sideman saxophonist John Coltrane. He was at the core of what became one of the most seminal groups in jazz history, the John Coltrane Quartet.

The Dave Holland Quintet who was scheduled on Thursday, January 27 to perform at St. Cecilia Music Center needed to cancel the appearance as Dave Holland’s wife is undergoing heart surgery and he is not able to travel at this time. Holland has agreed to return to Grand Rapids in the 2011/2012 season to perform at St. Cecilia Music Center.


McCoy Tyner will perform on January 27th at 7:30 p.m. in the Royce Auditorium of St. Cecilia Music Center located at 24 Ransom Avenue, NE in downtown Grand Rapids.
