This exciting music documentary, which won the Best Story at International Filmmaker Festival in Nice in 2016, features the story of the soaring saxophonist/flutist Thomas Chapin whose life was sadly cut short at 40, but not before his passionate playing won him a huge following on the international jazz festival circuit.

The NY Times called him “ a virtuoso, one of the more exuberant bandleaders in jazz…who could move easily between traditional jazz and the avant-garde.”

Nightbird Song, which features interviews and footage of Chapin, will be followed by a very special guest appearance by his longtime drummer, Michael Sarin, who will share some of his memories and host a Q&A with the audience.

Please join us for this fascinating evening of Jazz, July 17th at 7PM. The movie is FREE (donations accepted!) but tickets must be reserved in advance at
