The EMQ has also opened for Dave Brubeck at the Kimmel Center, has performed several times at the John F.

Mintel was also a featured guest on Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz on NPR and the quartet’s music is frequently heard on Sirius and XM radio.

 

The Eric Mintel Quartet will perform many originals by Mintel, songs by jazz legend Dave Brubeck and their own version of Paul Desmond’s Take Five. It promises to be an exciting night of music and fun for the entire family.
