Back to the Barnes!
Yesterday, Avalon Jazz Band performed at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia for Comcast’s corporate event. We’ve been to the Barnes several times now, but we are always so happy to go back! It is such a wonderful and magical place, full of art and history. It’s a lovely feeling to perform French jazz in the modern home of masterpieces by Matisse, Picasso and Soutine… we know that we are contributing to bring them and the era they are from to life, and we feel very honored to have this opportunity. We really encourage all of you to discover the Barnes museum whenever you are in Philadelphia, it has become an important cultural landmark of this beautiful city.
