After I posted about St. Peter’s a little while ago, I was invited to meet with a couple of representatives of the university to discuss working together. I’m so happy to say it’s been very productive, and I’m looking forward to announcing some new projects that we’re going to have happening in the neighborhood.
But for now, I just wanted to let you know about a series of concerts that they would love to have the neighborhood come out for. They’re free, local, and sound really fantastic, and all run through a program at SPU called the Arts on Bergen.
Coming up next Friday there will be a concert at St. Aedan’s called “Reed, Rhythm, and All That Brass.” Totally free and open to all! St. Aedan’s is located at 800 Bergen Ave, at Mercer Street. I’ve never been inside but it looks beautiful from the pictures I’ve seen. Here’s more info on the event:
Arts on Bergen presents: Reeds, Rhythm and All That Brass, a 17-piece jazz swing dance band with vocals. Join us for an evening of classic big-band repertoire, ranging from Ellington, Basie, and Goodman to Sinatra, Darin, and Ray Charles.
Add the Arts on Bergen on Facebook to see their upcoming schedule. Some of the events are midday, and others are in the evening. I’m thinking of topping off next Friday’s event with a trip to some of McGinley’s restaurants and bars to make a whole night of it.
Anyway – hope to see you next week, and more info coming soon!
