About the Event

It’s always a party in the birthplace of jazz—New Orleans! The Philadelphia-based Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble celebrates Jazz Appreciation Month with a Crescent City groove. Join us for the music of Louis Armstrong, Joe “King” Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, Gary U.S. Bonds, and many more. Put on your Mardi Gras beads, paint your face, and get ready to party, New Orleans style!


As part of Philly's Parkway 100 celebration, join award-winning author David Brownlee for a 6pm discussion on his book Building the City Beautiful, followed by a book signing. Brownlee is a historian of modern architecture whose books include Louis I. Kahn: In the Realm of Architecture and Making a Modern Classic: The Architecture of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
