ABOUT Charles Mingus

Charles Mingus was an American composer, bandleader, bassist and pianist, who was famous for his virtuosity, fiery personality, and brilliant contributions to music. Although contemporary musicians continue to study and play Mingus’ compositions, the depth and richness of his pieces is widely considered to be under-appreciated by those outside of the jazz community.

On October 15th, the 100th year since the birth of Charles Mingus, seven musicians will assemble at the Candy Factory to pay tribute to the maestro by performing some of his most famous works.

The Sixth Floor is the Candy Factory’s clubhouse, venue, and event space located on the sixth floor of our tower in the heart of Lancaster PA. It’s the perfect location for your intimate event. From retreats to private parties, this space is comfortable and flexible with a chill vibe. Book a tour today.
