Jazz From the Undercroft: A Mardi Gras Celebration

The Taft School Music for a While concert series continues Friday, February 9 with Jazz From the Undercroft: A Mardi Gras Celebration. The event is free and open to the public.

Since it was acquired by Taft in 2010, Woodward Chapel, Watertown's one-time Episcopal Church, has become both an artistic and spiritual hub. The Mardi Gras concert will take place in the Chapel's undercroft, a vast, lower-level space with a jazz-club vibe.

Taft instrumental music teacher T.J. Thompson will be the featured pianist for the evening, with an ensemble that includes Nick DiMaria on trumpet, Ben Lively on fiddle, Michael Louchen, Jr., on bass, James Allen on drums, and special guest Rev. Bob Ganung on guitar.

Woodward Chapel is located at 25 The Green, in Watertown. Doors open at 6:30 pm for the 7 pm performance. Admission is free; no tickets are required. Guests are invited to bring their own refreshments.
