3rd Thursdays @ the Snite
Summer Music Series
Join us for a jazz concert in the Mary Loretto & Terrence J. Dillon Courtyard. Bring your own blanket or lawn chair. We’ll provide light snacks, a cash bar, the atmosphere, and some amazing jazz. Picnicking is encouraged.
All 3rd Thursdays @ the Snite are free and open to all. Museum galleries and exhibitions are also open.
Keigo Hirakawa Trio
“Full of inventiveness and a sense of adventure, creativeness and voracious angularity, aggressiveness, and jaggedness, passion and swing.”
-Stephen Scott, jazz pianist
The Keigo Hirakawa Trio is a hard hitting, hard swinging jazz piano trio. A graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Hirakawa has appeared on stages with Donald Byrd, JD Allen, Bob Moses, Allen Vizzutti, Greg Abate, Eddie Bayard, and Richie Barshay. Joining Hirakawa is a veteran bassist Eddie Brookshire, who played alongside Elvin Jones, Donald Byrd, Rusty Bryant, Johnny Lytle, and Fathead Newman, and Fenton Sparks, a longtime drummer for Bill Cunliffe.
The 3rd Thursdays @ the Snite Summer Music Series is curated by Stephen and Mary Merriman of Merrimans' Playhouse.
