Jewish Museum is one of the organizations hosting the Thursday, July 2, concert of the Jazz in the Garden series at The Newark
Museum. The featured performance is the Gary Bartz Quartet.
Bartz has been known to many as a trail blazer in the music business from the moment
he started playing with Art Blakely at his father’s jazz club in Baltimore. During his 57 years as
a professional jazz musician, he has recorded 40 solo albums and over 200 albums as a guest artist. In
2005, his album with McCoy Tyner, “Illuminations,” was awarded a Grammy.
The concert will be
held, rain or shine, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. and offers an opportunity to enjoy wonderful music in the Newark Museum's
award winning Alice Ransom Dreyfuss Memorial Garden. In the event of rain, the performance will take place in the Museum's
Billy Johnson Auditorium.
and friends of The Jewish Museum of New Jersey should bring a copy of this notice for free admission. Lunch and soft
drinks are available for purchase. Brown bagging is welcome.
