PHILADELPHIA, PA: Woodmere Art Museum continues to attract exceptional musical talents in historic Chestnut Hill with their popular, on-going Friday Night Jazz and Classic Sundays series. Each weekend in April, May and June, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy rotating exhibitions while listening to the music of Philadelphia jazz legends and discovering the work of a new class of rising stars in the classical music scene.

This season Music at Woodmere, which launched last spring, will introduce audiences to emerging national and international talents such as The Quattro Battute musicians Elicia Silverstein, Brendan Speitz, Max Geissler and Aaron Mossberg on April 22; Pianist Seymour Lipkin on April 29; Pianist Di Wu on May 13; violinist Kristin Lee and pianist Andrea Lam on June 17, and many more. The season also includes the return of favorite jazz and classical artists such as Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble (May 18, June 1), acclaimed pianist Oxana Harlamova (June 3), trumpeter Tony Smith (June 8), and flutist Lisamarie McGrath (June 10)., as well as special concert performances by Sun Ra Arkestra (From Saturn to Woodmere, April 27), Charles Ellerbe and Matrix 12:38 (A Tribute to Jimi Hendrix hosted by J. Michael Harrison of WRTI’s The Bridge, May 4) and vocalist Mary Ellen Desmond and her band performing I’ll Always Love My Mama: Music of Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli on May 11.

Every Friday Night Jazz event includes a Friday Night Family Happening, a companion family-programming event from 6 – 7 p.m. offering visitors with children the opportunity to engage the whole family in a visit to the Museum. Hands-on activities on May 4 and June 1 will explore the upcoming exhibition Salvatore Pinto: A Retrospective Celebrating the Barnes Legacy (May 12-July 15).

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
