April is Jazz Appreciation Month!
Please join Jazz Bridge in celebrating Jazz Appreciation Month as we have gone back into the Jazz Bridge archives to bring you concerts from the Philadelphia Real Book.

Each week beginning Wednesday, April 7, Jazz Bridge will re-broadcast these concerts on our website and on Facebook, that were presented in 2017 at
Terra Hall on the campus of the University of the Arts and was supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.

These virtual concerts are presented by a generous donation from Paulette “Micki” Singleton to honor those musicians we lost to COVID. 

Donations to support area artists in our community are always welcome. To learn more about us, visit www.jazzbridge.org. Enjoy!
