Eric Hofbauer’s Prehistoric Jazz Quintet at First Fridays

First Fridays is pleased to announce its third concert of the season. On Friday, April 6, 2018 at 8 pm, Eric Hofbauer’s Prehistoric Jazz Quintet will play the program “Reminiscing in New England,” with original arrangements of modern classical works for Hofbauer’s third-stream jazz chamber group. The program features a premiere of Duke Ellington’s R​eminiscing in Tempo,​ and selections from Stravinsky’s T​he Rite of Spring,​ Messiaen’s Q​uartet For The End Of Time, a​ nd Charles Ives’ T​hree Places in New England.​ As Hofbauer puts it, “The Prehistoric Jazz series is less about jazzing the classics … and more about celebrating the common ground between the 20t​h​ century modernists and postmodern jazz improvisation.”

The quintet features Eric Hofbauer on guitar, Todd Brunel on clarinet and bass clarinet, Jerry Sabatini on trumpet, Junko Fujiwara on cello, and Curt Newton on drum set.

This and future concerts take place on the first Friday of each month and are free and open to the public with refreshments provided.  Free street parking is available.

Healthy Kids Day

School’s out and it’s time to relax, decompress and have fun with friends. Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow. But for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain more weight and fall behind in studies.
On April 21, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids. Details for the 2018 Healthy Kids Day will be provided soon!
This event is free and open to the public!
