Jack Arthur McCray spent the last thirty years of his life building strong and relevant relationships with many people around the world. He had a love for family, history, research, writing, food, music, jazz, people, life and his beloved Charleston. He was a man of great vision and is a man whose legacy lives on in the work he brought to life. Jack’s Charleston Jazz family has spent nearly the last year continuing to execute and build upon many of the ideas, projects and programs that he had a significant hand in creating. We invite you to celebrate the life and legacy of Jack McCray at this special event. Join us as we pay tribute to our dear friend – a true visionary, founding board member, colleague, and stranger to no one.
In Jack’s lifetime, he saw a dream become a reality with the birth of the Charleston Jazz Orchestra. Join us on Sunday, October 7 as we pay tribute to our dear friend with a performance by Charleston’s resident big band, the Charleston Jazz Orchestra, in honor of founding producer, Jack McCray. The event will also feature a very special guest, in combination with her small ensemble, internationally renowned vocalist, René Marie. Doors open at 3 p.m. Concert begins at 4 p.m. with two sets of music, one intermission and a multimedia presentation. Guests are encouraged to arrive by 3:30 p.m. for a special presentation outside of the auditorium.
