Saturday’s “A Jazz Piano Christmas” at the Kennedy Center (and co-produced by National Public Radio) will be dedicated to pianist Dave Brubeck, who died of heart failure Wednesday morning.

The event features performances by Jason Moran, Ellis Marsalis, Geri Allen and Taylor Eigsti. It’s sold out, but if you don’t already have tickets, it will be recorded for later broadcast on NPR stations.
