Enjoy a free jazz concert in the Mary Loretto & Terrence J. Dillon Courtyard. The Merrimans’ Play-House Players features local musicians Stephen Merriman (drums), Mary Merriman (bass), Jeff Miller (guitar), Don Lerman (saxophone), and Anibal Maximiliano “Max” Medina (percussion). This performance will highlight their enjoyment of one of jazz’s most valued traditions—the open session. This format nurtures not only the active player but also the active listener. The open session gives listeners insight into the “method behind the madness” by putting into practice collectively what they’ve been practicing individually.
Bring your own blanket or lawn chair. We’ll provide fresh popcorn, the atmosphere, and some amazing jazz. Picnicking encouraged. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be moved indoors.
3rd Thursdays @ the Snite are free, open to all, include refreshments, and are a great way to connect with art in new ways. Museum galleries will also be open that evening.
Free shuttle (4:45-7:45 p.m.) from the Bulla Road Lot to the Museum or park free in lots south of Stadium and walk to Museum.
Series curated by Stephen and Mary Merriman of Merrimans’ Playhouse.
