Ring in the new year as we celebrate Philadelphia as the music city that it is. You can revisit the city’s past with music from Grover Washington, Jr., Trudy Pitts, the Eubanks’ and other jazz royalty.  There will also be a celebration of today’s Philly jazz scene, featuring Lee Smith, Daniel Peterson, and other local notables who always seem to be on the city’s music calendar. Monday, December 31st, 9 pm to midnight.

Ring in 2013 with timeless music!
