About the Event

Enjoy an evening of art, live music, cocktails, and light fare at our monthly First Friday mixer. Tonight’s program features two sets by the Keystone Jazz Collective. This all-star ensemble, cofounded by Philadelphia bassist and composer Nimrod Speaks and Pittsburgh trombonist Reggie Watkins, brings together musicians from across the state to entertain, enrich, and educate through performances and workshops. Collectively and independently, these musicians have shared the stage with an impressive roster of acts, including the Temptations, Jason Mraz, Bootsie Barnes, and Tim Warfield. In honor of Jazz Appreciation Month, the Keystone Jazz Collective will bring its masterful musical stylings to the Barnes.

Live music sets:
6:30 and 7:45 pm

First Friday at the Barnes includes access to the collection galleries and to Sue Williamson & Lebohang Kganye: Tell Me What You Remember.

Cocktails and light fare are available for purchase. Seating is limited.
