This exciting, live, multi-media "informance" celebrates the groundbreaking achievements of the iconic trumpeter, bandleader, and cultural provocateur, Miles Davis.  The program traverses Davis's extensive career and features music from some of the most creatively fertile periods of his career, including the divergence into electric music in the late 1960s. Using both jazz history and 20th-century American history as a backdrop, Miles Davis and the Blue Flame Incident (which alludes to one of Davis's earliest childhood memories) will engage, inform and enlighten audiences about one of the most compelling, infinitely creative, and trailblazing artists the world has ever known.



Bowker Auditorium is located within Stockbridge Hall.
