St. John’s is committed to acts of racial justice and building community through the arts. Join us for the second of a three-concert music series to meet new neighbors and hear the voices of justice through the jazz idiom. Jazz Alive is co-sponsor.
This second concert, on February 18, is themed “Music and Revolution,” featuring the music of the Mike Wade Quintet.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students and can be purchased in advance online, or at the door on the night of each performance. For information, call (513) 961-1938.
