Friday Night Jazz
Friday, October 7 at 6:00 pm | $15 for members
Two styles of music that stirred controversy: Jazz icon and pianist Thelonious Monk played his soul in a unique, improvisational way; and a group of English teens composed and performed a new brand of melodies and rock n’roll that inspired music fans. Pianist Jim Holton and guitarist Frank Butrey put together the music of these innovators with exciting results.

Lecture | What’s in a Name? George Biddle and the Biddle Dynasty
Thursday, October 6 at 7:00 pm | FREE
Lecturer: John Vick, Director of Collections, Interpretation, and Engagement, The Andalusia Foundation
Born into an illustrious Philadelphia family of politicians, bankers, and lawyers, artist George Biddle distanced himself from his relatives and the society he felt they represented. This talk sketches out 300 years of Biddle history and profiles some of the family’s more unique characters, suggesting that George had more in common with them than he wanted to admit.
