Spend a summer evening grooving to jazz in the Mary Loretto & Terrence J. Dillon Courtyard. Bring your own blanket or lawn chair and settle in for some great music. A cash bar will be available.
The Merrimans' Play-House Players features local musicians Stephen Merriman (drums), Mary Merriman (bass), Jeff Miller (guitar), Don Lerman (alto saxophone), Stefan Hess (piano), and Todd Neuenschwander (tenor saxophone). This performance will highlight their enjoyment of one of jazz's most valued traditions–the open session. This format nurtures not only the active player but also the active listener. The open session gives listeners insight into the "method behind the madness" by putting into practice collectively what they've been practicing individually.
Museum galleries will also be open.
Convenient, free parking is available in the lots south of the Notre Dame Stadium. A map and walking route can be found here.
Series curated by Stephen and Mary Merriman of Merrimans’ Playhouse.
