Co-Sponsored Event: Swingin’ at the Society

Get loud in the library this February as the Historical Society of Pennsylvania transforms from a shushed library into a raucous dance hall. Dance the night away as the sounds of Jazz Age America fill HSP’s halls with tunes from the Philadelphia-based band Bitters & Rye. Prior to cutting loose on the dance floor, frisk your whiskers with a presentation by music historian Jack McCarthy as he explores Philadelphia’s prominence in jazz history with stories and images of the city’s groundbreaking jazz artists
