Announcing The 2013/2014 Jazz Bridge Neighborhood Concert Series

Published:
Jazz Bridge, the region’s non-profit dedicated to assisting Jazz and blues musicians in need, has announced its stellar Neighborhood Concert Series for 2013-2014. With nearly 40 concerts on five area stages with some 200 singers and instrumentalists covering virtually every jazz genre, this year’s Jazz Bridge Neighborhood Concert Series, which runs from October through May, promises to be among the most exciting and wide-ranging in the organization's 10-year history.

Tickets to all shows - available only at the door - are $10 or $5 with student ID, and all shows begin at 7:30 pm. Special laminated season pass VIP Gold Cards are also available (for only $125.00, a savings of $225.00 over all shows). For more information, call 215-517-8337, or visit Jazz Bridge for the full schedule.
