Concerts in the Courtyard: Parlour Noir

Enjoy a concert under the stars in the Museum's outdoor courtyard featuring traditional jazz music by Parlour Noir.

Before the show, Frank Stewart's Nexus: An American Photographer's Journey, 1960s to the Present will be open from 6 p.m.–7p.m. Tracing both Stewart’s explorations of life on the road and the trajectory of his stylistic journey, the exhibition brings together a comprehensive visual autobiography through over 100 black-and-white and color photographs as well as a selection of cameras from Stewart’s personal archives. As the senior staff photographer for Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra for 30 years, Stewart captured both public performances and candid, personal moments, including well-known photographs of jazz legends Miles Davis, Ahmad Jamal, and Wynton Marsalis.


Since 2017, Parlour Noir has been a well-spring of traditional jazz music from the historic Mt. Airy district of Philadelphia, PA. The band swings hard through a repertoire that spans 1922-1945, including a handful of original tunes made specifically for the dance floor. They've now become one of Philadelphia's premier Swing Bands.

Tickets for this event are not refundable.

Food and drinks will be available for purchase from the Millstone Cafe. No outside food or beverages are permitted.
