Third Thursdays

Third Thursdays is a new monthly harmolodic jazz series project featuring keyboardist and composer Dave Bryant. Dave will be joined each month by several of his many long-time collaborators hailing from the Boston area and beyond.

The series will be held in the beautiful and acoustically impressive vestry of the Harvard-Epworth Church near Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA USA.

Concerts start at 8:00 pm. Admission at the door is $10. Seating capacity will abide by whatever health and safety protocols are in place at the church on any given month.

See Dave’s Facebook Events page for more info or contact him via email.
