3rd Thursday Jazz is going virtual for 2020! Fans of all ages are invited to free online jazz events on the third Thursdays of each month from August to November.

This season will feature Taylor Pace in August, Duane Durrett Quartet in September and other programs in October and November. Program details:


September 17: Duane Durrett Quartet
