Manicur Assembly Hall in FSU's Lane University Center. The club-style event includes table and bar service and a menu of appetizers and desserts.A native of Trinidad and Tobago, Etienne Charles taps into his Afro-Caribbean roots and plumbs the musical depths of the islands, from calypso to Haitian voodoo music. Hailed by Jazz Times as "a daring improviser (who) delivers with heart-rending lyricism," the Juilliard-educated musician has earned high praise, including a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship in 2015. Together with a masterful band of jazz musicians on piano, alto saxophone, guitar, upright bass and percussion, Charles' strikingly original style will be on full display with Creole Soul. Immediately following the performance, CES joins forces with Frostburg State University's own WFWM-FM to present the Offstage Series With WFWM, when station director Chuck Dicken joins the artists onstage for a lively interactive discussion with the audience.
