Warm Up for the Center City Jazz Festival at Art After 5!

Join WRTI’s Jeff Duperon this Friday, April 11th at 6 pm as he broadcasts live from Art After 5 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. On the radio, you'll hear the great jazz you expect from WRTI, along with insight and commentary about the third annual Center City Jazz Festival, which is coming up on April 19th. Trombonist Ernest Stuart, founder of the Festival, will speak with Jeff about all the details.

At the Museum, Stuart is your host for a "A Great Night in Philadelphia," a kick-off to the Festival, featuring an all-Philly house band with bassist Mike Boone, drummer Anwar Marshall, and pianist Luke O’Reilly. Distinguished Festival alumni performing include vocalist Joanna Pascale, pianist George Burton, alto saxophonist Jaleel Shaw, and trumpeter Chris Aschman. Information about Art After 5.

Maureen began her radio career at WRTI in 1999 while studying broadcasting at Temple University. Determined to make it in the entertainment industry, she took advantage of all the creative opportunities presented to her at WRTI - she hosted the overnight jazz broadcasts through her entire college career, she was an arts and culture reporter, and she soaked up the jazz biz from her many WRTI mentors.
